Lyrics as Poetry

Jesus, teacher, brave and bold,
let us serve you, young and old.
Let us faith-filled workers be,
all around your wisdom see.
Let us play and dance and sing,
your goodness find in everything.Jesus, friend, so strong and true,
show us good, brave work to do.
Show us those who need a friend,
all things broken help us mend.
Free our minds and stretch our care,
teach us to serve you everywhere.
