Song Notes:

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.

Song Lyrics:

We Follow In His Way

Vs 1

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

Vs 2

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
