The Teacher





Lord, who am I to teach the way

To little children day by day,

So prone myself to go astray?



I teach them KNOWLEDGE, but I know

How faint they flicker and how low

The candles of my knowledge glow.



I teach them POWER to will and do,

But only now to learn anew

My own great weakness through and through.



I teach them LOVE for all mankind

And all God's creatures, but I find

My love comes lagging far behind.



Lord, if their guide I still must be,

Oh let the little children see

The teacher leaning hard on Thee.
