School Song

Immediate response in my mind

Did I fill the world with love
Did I fill the world with love
Did I fill the world with love my whole life through

Because! My School Song
Sung at the end of every year
One hundred and fifty girls
Tucked up in a convent far away

Will I fill the world with love
Will I fill the world with love
My whole life through

It is the noontime of my life
This evening as I would type
And I look to the moonlight
Tomorrow the shining sun so bright
In vast, endless sky deep blue

And the blessing I will ask will remain
Unchanging
To be brave and strong and true
And to fill the world with love my whole life through!

Fill the World with Love

Music & Lyrics by Leslie Bricusse
Artist – Petula Clark
Album – Goodbye Mr. Chips
Lyrics – Fill The World With Love

In the morning of my life I shall look to the sunrise.
At a moment in my life when the world is new.
And the blessing I shall ask is that God will grant me,
To be brave and strong and true,
And to fill the world with love my whole life through.

(Chorus)
And to fill the world with love
And to fill the world with love
And to fill the world with love my whole life through

In the noontime of my life I shall look to the sunshine,
At a moment in my life when the sky is blue.
And the blessing I shall ask shall remain unchanging.
To be brave and strong and true,
And to fill the world with love my whole life through

(Chorus)

In the evening of my life I shall look to the sunset,
At a moment in my life when the night is due.
And the question I shall ask only I can answer.
Was I brave and strong and true?
Did I fill the world with love my whole life through?

  1. Lovely lyrics. I have been a “Pet” Clark fan for most of my life but I just might have to check this song out. “did i fill the world with love my whole life through?” what a question! one i should meditate on daily, perhaps the most important question in the end. hmm, i’m thinking another tattoo haha, but i should just work on remembering without i suppose. thank you for this post 🙂
