The teacher leaning hard on Thee

The Teacher
by Leslie Pinckney Hill

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 far behind.   

Lord, if their guide I still must be,     
Oh let the little children see  
The teacher leaning hard on Thee.
