{October 31, 2009}   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 still behind.

“Lord, if their guide I still must be,
O let the little children see
The teacher leaning hard on thee!”
