At Work Beside His Father's Bench

Melody -

Alice M. Pullen

1. At work beside his father's bench,
At play when work was done,
In quiet Galilee he lived,
The friend of everyone.
Comrade of boys and girls like us,
Playmate so straight and true,
In all our work, in all our play,
Make us true comrades too.
  2. And as he grew to be a man
He wandered far and wide,
To be a friend to all in need
Throughout the countryside.
Comrade of men, so strong and true,
Help us strong friends to be,
Make us true comrades, one and all,
To others and to thee.
