Lead Kindly Light
Lead kindly light
Amidst the encircling gloom.
Lead Thou me on!
The night is dark,
And I am far from home.
Lead Thou me on!
Keep Thou my feet,
I do not ask to see
The distant scene
One-step enough for me!-Cardinal Newman
Bind us Together Lord
Bind us together Lord (2)
Bind us together with cords
That cannot be broken!
Bind us together Lord (2)
Bind us together with love
There is only one God,
There is only one King
There is only one body
That is why we sing
Made for the glory of the Lord
Purchased by His precious Son
Born with the right to be clean
For Jesus the victory is won
The Lords Prayer
Our Father in heaven, Holy be your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our sins, as we forgive, those who sin, against us. Lead us not, into temptation, but deliver us, from all evil.
Prayer for The Nation
Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high;
Where knowledge is free;
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls;
Where words come out from the depth of truth;
Where tireless striving stretches its arm towards perfection;
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the dreary desert of dead habit;
Where the mind is led forward by Thee into ever-widening thought and action Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake. Rabindra Nath Tagore
India is my country/ all Indians are/ my brothers and sister/ I love my country/ and I am proud of/ it's rich and varied heritage. / I shall always strive/ to be worthy of it./ I shall give my parents/ teachers and all elders/ respect/ and treat everyone with courtesy./ To my country/ and my people./ I pledge my devotion./ In their well-being/ and prosperity alone/ lies my happiness.
Prayer Before Class
O! God, who are truth, and the origin of all knowledge bless our studies, which we consecrate to you. Enlighten our minds, strengthen our memories and direct our wills towards what is right. Grant us courage to seek, truth always, and make us truely wise.
Prayer After Class
Dear God, the class being over, we are going home, we thank you for your gifts. We promise you to be dutiful at home, as we have been at school. Help us to be good, clever and obedient children. Providence of God watch over us.
O! Give Thanks to The Lord
O! Give thanks to the Lord for He is good,
Yes, Eternal is His Love
I will sing to my God never ceasing
All my life, I will tell of His wonders
He is the maker of all earth and heaven
Of the ocean, the seas and all they hold.
The Almighty is faithful forever
He is just to the poor and the outraged
It is He who gives bread to the hungry
Who delivers the captives from their chains.
