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
How faint the flicker and how low
The candles of my knowledge glow.
I teach them power to will and do,
But only now I 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 thy guide I still must be,
Oh, let the little children see
The teacher leaning hard on Thee.

-Leslie Pinckney Hill
