does anyone know the title to this hymn? You can build a wall around you

Can anyone help me? I remember this song from school but cannot find it's title. Help soon as possible please. Here it is:

You can build a wall around you
Stone by stone a solid ring
You can live alone in an empty home
Be in charge and be the king!!

Break out!
Reach out!
Make the walls tumble down down down
Break out!
Reach out!
Make the walls tumble down.

thanks!!

The version I knew at school was.

You can build a wall around you.
Stop the sun from shining in.
There'll be snow topped trees and a chilly breeze.
Always winter never spring.

Break out!
Reach out!
Make the walls tumble down down down
Break out!
Reach out!
Make the walls tumble down.

The hymn Breakout was a favourite of mine when I was a primary school teacher. Great tune as well. It's lyrics are based on the Oscar Wilde story of The Selfish Giant. If you haven't read it, please do. He tries to stop the children playing by building a wall around his garden and, as a result summer and spring leave the garden too....
