School and Prayer
Ever conscious of our motto
We shall always work and play
Striving for both truth and honour
This is what we truly pray
May each day be filled with gladness
When we do our best by thee
In the classroom, on the sportsfield
Free and fair, victorious be
Edenglen you are our bulwark
Strong support through all the years
Ever may you guide and lead us
Stilling all our doubts and fears
When the years have passed and left us
May the memories still remain
Of the knowledge sought and found here
Bringing us reward and gain
For the good things freely given
Edenglen, we you acclaim.
O Lord, God of Truth, whom to know is everlasting life and to serve is perfect freedom, grant that we may draw near to Thee in thought, word and deed.
Inspire us with the loveof Thy creatures and Thy laws so that with patience and understanding, by honest and earnest labour, we may seek after knowledge as a blessing that cometh from Thee.
Whether it be our part to teach or to learn, to rule or obey, make us feel Thy Presence in our several duties, filling us with reverence for the beauty and wonder of thy Universe, and pouring on us a spirit of justice and gentleness and mutual goodwill.
Thus, by Thy Grace, may we so use this house of learning, that we may prepare our powers of body, mind and spirit to advance the good of man and the Glory of God.
