SCHOOL SONG COMMISSIONS

SCHOOL SONG COMMISSIONS

As a songwriter I have been enjoying the challenge of writing school songs. It has given me the opportunity to get to know particular schools, their ideals and hopes for the future.

I usually make several visits to the school, spending time in each class and interviewing staff.

For more information about the artist in residence program and arranging a school song commission please call Maria on 0411158593 or email mforde@alphalink.com.au

'St Francis of Tarneit' Lyrics:IMG_9602.JPG

ST FRANCIS OF ASSISI

CHORUS

St Francis of Assisi

You are our guiding light

Watch over with love today

Teach us what is right

Growing up as Christians

We learn to live in peace

God bless St Francis

St Francis of Tarneit!

VERSE ONE

We are a loving people

Welcoming to all

A vibrant school community

Responding to your call

To love all creation

And love all people too

Seeing God in everyone

And everything we do

CHORUS

VERSE TWO

You taught us to be humble

To love our Mother Earth

Protecting the environment

And valuing its worth

Every flower, every animal

Every girl and every boy

Joining in God's chorus

We shout out for joy...!

CHORUS

And when we leave St Francis

School community

May we spread the love of God

That dwells in you and me....
