1 Now sounding over hills and lea,
I hear the pealing bells;
My Sunday school is calling me,
My heart with gladness fills.

2 Teach me to know Thee, dearest Lord,
And walk upon Thy way;
Take me in hand, lest from Thy Word
My feet should go astray.

3 Thou knowest from afar so well
What is within my soul,
But not a thought therein shall dwell
That Thou dost not control.

4 O Father, plant in me Thy seed
And set me free from sin;
But root Thou up each deadly weed
That swiftly grows within.

5 My purpose is to please but Thee
In spirit, soul, and mind,
I pray Thee, Father, lead Thou me
That I the way may find.

6 While over lea and dale and hills
The bell their peal prolong,
My heart the joy from heaven fills,
I lift to God my song.
