“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 thru and thru.

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.

~ Leslie Pinckney Hill

If ever I knew this was true, 'tis now: I cannot do anything, namely teach my children, without God's help and power.
