Westmorland School Song

♫ * * * BLEST WESTMORLAND * * * ♫

DEAR FATHER-GOD, WHO MADE US ALL

YOU HOLD US IN YOUR HAND

WE ASK A BLESSING ON THIS SCHOOL

HER SERVICE TO THIS LAND

REFRAIN:

O WESTMORLAND, O WESTMORLAND

WE PLEDGE OUR TIME AND THOUGHT

TO KEEP OUR STANDARD EVER HIGH

TO LIVE AS WE ARE TAUGHT

~

INSTILL US WITH THE URGE TO LEARN

TO FIND IN STUDY-JOY

AND, AS WE GROW IN STRENGTH AND GRACE

OUR BEST GIFTS TO EMPLOY

~

MAY PUPIL, STAFF AND PARENTS, TOO

HELP TO PROMOTE GOD’S PLAN

IN WORD AND DEED, TO REALISE

THE CHILD WILL BE THE MAN

~

SO, KEEP US SAFE FROM EVERY WRONG

EACH HONEST EFFORT BLESS

TO BUILD ON SURE FOUNDATIONS, LAID

IN TRUST AND FAITHFULNESS
