Teachers Are the Sculptors of Young Lives

Music: Sonata K100.
By Domenico Scarlatti. Sequenced by
John Sankey.

Teachers are the sculptors of young lives.
How fortunate our child was shaped by you!
A year in your class taught him how to study,
No longer lost in thoughts that he finds new,
Knowing now the paths each thought derives.

Your love and strong solicitude embody
Other virtues our child has tried on, too.
Under your good guidance hope survives.
