1.  Lord and Saviour, true and kind,

Be the Master of my mind;

Bless, and guide, and strengthen still

All my powers of thought and will.

2.  Let Thy gracious presence rule

All I think and speak at school;

Keep me faithful, prompt, and keen,

At Thy side, my King unseen.

3.  Here I train for life’s swift race;

Let me do it in Thy grace;

Here I arm me for life’s fight;

Let me do it in Thy might.

4.  Thou hast made me mind and soul;

I for Thee would use the whole:

Thou hast died that I might live;

All my powers to Thee I give.
