“God of All Learning” & Blessed Backpacks!
The students came out with their backpacks and we blessed the with the song below. We also blessed them with bagtags to help them remember two important lessons. Unfortunately, we ran out, so if you’re interested in a bag tag for your student, let us know!
God of All Learning
BUNESSAN 188.8.131.52 D (“Morning Has Broken”)
God of all learning, God of all knowing,
We bring these backpacks filled with supplies.
Bless all these tools of learning and growing.
Use them, we pray, to change many lives.
Bless all the students, young ones and old ones —
Walking or riding, traveling by bus.
May they remember that you go with them,
And that they all are precious to us.
Some kids are poor and some kids are wealthy;
May we give all the tools that they need.
May we make sure they’re safe, loved and healthy
So that they all may thrive and succeed.
Bless all who learn and bless those who guide them,
Bless those who teach and counsel and care.
May they remember you walk beside them.
Through all their school days, you, Lord, are there.
