School Life 367. Father in heaven, who lovest all



Horatio Parker, 1901

Rudyard Kipling, 1906

Father in heaven, who lovest all,

O help thy children when they call;

That they may build from age to age

An undefilèd heritage.

Teach us to bear the yoke in youth,

With steadfastness and careful truth;

That, in our time, thy grace may give

The truth whereby the nations live.

Teach us to rule ourselves alway,

Controlled and cleanly night and day;

That we may bring, if need arise,

No maimed or worthless sacrifice.

Teach us to look in all our ends

On thee for Judge and not our friends;

That we, with thee, may walk uncowed

By fear or favour of the crowd.

Teach us the strength that cannot seek,

By deed or thought, to hurt the weak;

That, under thee, we may possess

Man's strength to comfort man's distress.

Teach us delight in simple things,

And mirth that has no bitter springs;

Forgiveness free of evil done,

And love to all men 'neath the sun.


(Land of our birth, our faith, our pride,

For whose dear sake our fathers died;

O Motherland, we pledge to thee

Head, heart, and hand through the years to be.)
