Before Class

O God, who are the truth and the origin of knowledge, bless our studies, which       
We offer to you. Enlighten our minds, strengthen our memories, and direct our will,   
towards what is right. Grant us, to seek truth always, and make us truly wise.

    1. O Lord, help us with your grace to begin, continue and finish the work for your greater honour and glory. Enlighten our minds that we may understand what we are going to study and apply ourselves diligently to the work in hand. Lord through out this day; let me be faithful to my duties, respectable and courteous to my teachers, companions and every one I meet. Above all let me never offend you by my thoughts, words and actions.
    2. O God! Creator of the universe, I offer you my whole being, Lord bless me. Source of light; enlighten my mind that I may know your plan for me today. Bless my parents, teachers, friends and all whom I meet today. Comfort the afflicted, and help the needy. Bless our work and studies. So that what ever we do today may bring glory to your name.
    3.Our father in the heaven, Holy be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as in heaven. Give us today, our daily bread, forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us, do not bring us to the test, but deliver us from evil.

    After Class

    O my God! I love you and thank you for all the benefits you have showered upon me. I am sorry for ever having offended you and I promise never to offend you again. Lord ! we are now going home, bless our parents, teachers and all those who have been good to us today. Be with us till we reach home and protect us from accidents, sickness and misfortunes and keep us always safe in your loving care. Amen.



Chorus  :    This is my prayer to Thee, my Lord:
                   Strike, Strike at the root of penury in my heart.

  1.    Give me the strength to bear my joys and sorrows.
  2.    Give me the strength to make my love fruitful in service.
  3.    Give me the strength never to disown the poor or bend

    my knees before insolent might.

  1.    Give me the strength to raise my mind high above daily trifles.
  2.    Give me the strength to surrender my strength to Thy will with    love.


Chorus :   I have come to thee to take thy touch before I begin my day.

  1.  Let thy eyes rest upon my eyes for a while.
  2.  Let me take to my work the assurance of thy comradeship, My friend.


  •  All things bright and beautiful
    All creatures great and small
    All things wise and wonderful
    The Good God made them all

  • Each little flower that opens,
    Each little bird that sings,
    He made their glowing colours,
    He made their tiny wings.


           Lord, I have come to your garden
           To see what grows there today
           Lord, I have come to your garden
           To love, to work and to pray.

  •  In your garden blows cold-cold wind
    That chills the heart of men.
    Over your garden rests a dull grey sky
    What is the colour of sin?
  • Green grows the green on the hill side Lord!
    Red is the valley floor.
               Blue is the mist on the mountain top
               What is the colour of war?


1. Glory and praise to our God;
Who alone gives light to our days;
Many are the blessing he bears;
To those who trust in his ways.

2. We, the daughters and sons of him,
Who built the valleys and plains,
Praise the wonders our god has done
In every heart that sings.

3. In his wisdom he strengthens us,
Like gold that’s tested in fire.
Though the power of sin prevails,
Our God is there to save.


Ref:  There are numerous strings in your lute,
        Let me add my own among them.

1. Then when you smite your chords,
    My heart will break its silence,
    And my heart will be one with your song.

2. Amidst your numberless stars,
    Let me place my own little lamp.

3.  In the dance of your festival of lights,
     My heart will throb and
     My life will be one with your smile.


        6.       OUR FATHER

            Our father who art in heaven
            Hallowed be your name
            Your kingdom come your will be done
            Hallowed be your name (2)
                        On the earth as it is in heaven
                         Hallowed be your name
                        Give us today our daily bread
                        Hallowed be your name (2)
            Forgive us all our sins and offences

God is so good (3) He’s so good to me
God cares for me (3) He cares for me
God leads me on (3) He leads me on
I’ll do his will (4)
I’ll trust in him (4)
I’ll sing his praise (4)


Chorus:       Listen, let your heart keep seeking,
                   Listen to his constant speaking,
                   Listen to the Spirit calling you.
                   Listen to his inspiration,
                   Listen to his invitation,
                   Listen to the Spirit calling you.       

1. He’s in the sound of the thunder, in the whisper of the breeze.
    He’s in the might of the whirlwind, in the roaring of the seas.
2. He’s in the laughter of children, in the patter of the rain.
    Hear him in cries of the suffering, in their moaning and their pain.
3. He’s in the noise of the city, in the twitter off the bird,
    And in the night time the stillness helps you listen to his word.
4. He speaks through all your companions, thru the friendly, thru the foe.
    Therefore give ear to the Spirit wheresoever He may blow.


1.          Make me a channel of your peace,
            Where there is hatred, let me bring your love,
Where there is injury, your pardon, Lord,
And where there’s doubt, true faith in you

Chorus: Oh, Master, grant that I may never seek
            So much to be consoled as to console,
            To be understood as to understand,
            To be loved as to love with all my soul.

2.          Make me a channel of your peace,
            Where there’s despair in life, let me bring hope,
            Where there is darkness, only light.
            And where there’s sadness, ever joy.

3.          Make me a channel of your peace.
            It is pardoning that we are pardoned.
            In giving to each one that we receive,
            And in giving that we’re born to eternal life.


1.          In His time, in his time,
            He makes all things beautiful in His time.
            Lord, please show me every day
            As you’re teach me your way,
            And to do just what you say.

2.          In your time, in your time,
            You make all things beautiful in your time,
            Lord, my life to you I bring,
            Make a song I have to sing,
            Be to you a lovely thing.

3.          There’s a time, there’s a time
            Both for showing and for reaping there’s a time,
            Time for lose and time for gain,
            Time for joy and time for pain,
            Every purpose under heaven has a time.

4.          There are times, there are days, weeks and months.

We cannot understand God’s ways.
If for years we fail to scan
What is his eternal plan,
We’ll remember that we can,
All the time.



  1. Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high,

Ref.: Into that heaven of freedom, my Father,
                    let my country awake !

2.          Where knowledge is free,
3.          Where the world has not been broken up into
            fragments by narrow domestic walls,
4.          Where words come out from the depth of truth,
5.          Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection,
6.          Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into
            the dreary desert sands of dead habit,
7.          Where the mind is led forward by thee
            into ever widening thought and action.


To the Nation
India is my country. All Indians are my brothers and sisters. I love my country and I am proud of its rich and varied heritage. I shall always strive to be worthy of it. I shall give my parents, teachers and all elders respect and treat every one with courtesy. To my country and my people, I pledge my devotion. In their well- being and prosperity alone lies my happiness.


Jana gana mana adhinayaka jaya he
                          Bharat baghya vidhata
            Punjab, Sindhu, Gujrat, Maraatha
                         Dravida, utkal vanga
            Vidhya Himachala Yamuna Ganga 
                        Uchhala jaladhi tarang 
             Tava subh name jayaga
                        Tava subh ashish  mangen
            Gahe tava jaya gatha
                        Jana gana mangal dayaka jaya he
            Bharat bhagya vidhata
                        Jaya he, jaya he, jaya he
            Jaya jaya jaya jaya he.
