Sang this in the late fifties at Chaulden primary school, Hemel Hempstead,
to a lovely tune. The words were on a chart on the wall, operated by a pulley!

Remember singing it at Chater Infants School Watford in the early 1960s! Now seeking the words so my daughter can teach it to her reception class. Thank you all x Judy

Thank you so much! This hymn has haunted me benignly and emotionally since I sang it in assembly with the other children at Errington School Marske-By-Sea in 1961. I can remember the tune to this day. Thank you Mr. Penstone and thank you www.namethathymn.com. [email]dsp@davidshaw-parker.com[/email]

Jut found this thread - it was one of my favourite hymns too.
The music is in the 1931 edition of 'Songs of Praise' (as used in many schools in the mid 20th century) edited by Percy Dearmer, R. Vaughan Williams) and Martin Shaw, and it's at number 378.
You should be able to get a copy secondhand (or possibly even new from OUP). Make sure you search for the 'Enlarged edition with music' e.g. at

I remember singing this at Micklethwaite first school at crossflats in Yorkshire. So many cosy memories.

Steve, thank you so much. I am now a Methodist minister at wesleychester.co.uk
I've been asked to speak at a group who would like to hear about hymns which have been significant in my journey and this is my first choice from my childhood at Broadway Methodist, Cullercoats in the 1970s. I'd been racking my brains and had come up with verse 2 and could search! Thank you. God Bless Christine
