This song was written for St Peters school in Hoppers Crossing, Victoria. The Parish and school were undergoing celebrations for their first 25 years at that time. It also coincided with a review of the parish and was used in the various celebrations surrounding the event.
Although this was written for St Peter’s school and Parish, I put Hoppers Crossing in brackets, as any school or parish could be inserted – its 6 beats so some examples that could fit are:
we at Wood-end town-ship; at Ben-di-go ci-ty; we at St Mar-y’s school; at St Pet-ers and Pauls
I hope you get the picture – you create the best way to get your name to fit.
We Follow In His Way
As Peter followed Jesus and learnt from His word
He followed His example. Tried to do what he had heard
He made mistakes and faltered, perfect he was not
But Jesus saw his loving strength, and said”You are the Rock!”
Upon which I will build my church
Remember what I say, and teach my people how to live, and follow in my way.
We follow in his way. We follow in his way
We are Jesus people learning how to live
In our school, church and families
Our love and service give
We follow in his way
And so, we at (hoppers Crossing), as a community we’ve lived
And learnt to follow in his way, to love and to forgive
As Peter followed Jesus, we follow in his steps
The Parents, teachers and the children
We try to do our best
And we are his church, we gather and we pray
To love our God and fellow man
And follow in his way – CH
