Loads of memories ! We used to sing this 40 plus yrs ago at the Orchard Infant School in East Molesey Surrey
I sang the first two verses of this song in Coteford Primary School in Eastcote, Middlesex. I have always remembered the words but never heard it since until now! I think the lovely teacher who taught it to us was called Mrs Stark.
I have been looking for this hymn for years, I too loved it at Primary School at Stainton Grove, Barnard Castle in the 1960'sl. Thank you all, now all I need is the tune.
Also sung regularly at Riverdale Junior School, Redcar
Found myself humming the tune on the ferry back from Dubrovnik to kolocep island late last night. Wonderful how something triggers a memory from primary school assemblies of the 70s . It was my favourite at ChristChurch school Downend Bristol and was in the Gloucestershire county hymn book .Ruth
I love this hymn too but only remember the first couple of versus. I think we use to sing it in rounds too.
The headmaster Mr Gradwell's daughter stood in for him one day and taught us the hymn at Shrubland Street Primary school Leamington Spa. I love it and still remember the words.Cynthia
Cannot believe so many people like me love this song,i use to live at Peppercombe ,quite near Appledore in North Devon and my gran use to sing it when I was little and I made a little alter on the beach when I was very young and sang this song all the time, expect it was because my whole family were fishing mad!I was looking for it because I want it sung at my funeral(hope a long......,time in the future )but wanted to put it safe with my will so very very pleased to find all the words as forgot some of them. Big Thank You.
Oh my goodness, the memories the words of this hymn brings back. We sang this regularly at friarage primary school, scarborough in the 1960s. It was my favourite. My dad was a fisherman. I wonder if the children there still sing it now and think about their dads out at sea. Lynne.
Love this song - so many memories of infant/junior school.
