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.”
I heard this poem while listening to Ravi Zacharius this morning after sending my kids off to their first day of school.
