O Lord of Mercy and Love,
Omnipresent, Omnipotent and Omniscient
We pray to thee in all humility and reverence
To help us in pursuit of knowledge
Under the guidance of our teachers.
Grant us an understanding heart,
Enquiring, fertile and balanced mind,
Faith, devotion and wisdom
To concentrate on our studies fully,
Showing steady progress, day after day.
Make us physically fit, mentally alert and spiritually secure
To follow the path of righteousness, leading on to Glory.
Free us from all perils and pestilence
Above all shape our conduct and character aright
To become worthy and eminent citizens
