He came to my desk with a quivering lip, the lesson was done.
Have you a new sheet for me dear teacher? I've spoiled this one.
I took his sheet all soiled and blotted
And gave him a new one all unspotted.
And into his tired heart I cried;
Do better now my child.
I went to the throne with a trembling heart, the day was done.
"Have you a new day for me Dear Master, I've spoiled this one?"
He took my day all soiled and blotted
And gave me a new one all unspotted.
And into my tired heart He cried,
"Do better now my child."
