Shed thou Thy Grace...

Many churches, including ours, begin their regular program year  (including Church school) this morning.  This hymn, for "THE SUNDAY SCHOOL"  from Longfellow and Johnson's "Hymns of the Spirit" 1889 ed. 

"O Thou, who sendest sun and rain
On wilderness and peopled plain !
Shed Thou Thy grace on heart and tongue,
And bless our teaching of the young.

We ask for no reward of praise,
No mere success in outward ways,
But may we, Lord, successful be
In leading these young souls to Thee.

Grant Thou our hands the seed to sow
Which to eternal life shall grow;
Without Thine aid our toil must fail,
But with it, Lord, we shall prevail."

Blessings to all for a wonderful church year!
