  • A student must not remain absent from school without information.
  • Parents must avoid calling their ward home before the school time except in an emergency. However, in case of an emergency they must themselves collect their ward from the school.

तू ज़िन्दा है

तू ज़िन्दा है तो ज़िन्दगी की जीत में यकीन कर,
अगर कहीं है स्वर्ग तो उतार ला ज़मीन पर!

सुबह औ' शाम के रंगे हुए गगन को चूमकर,
तू सुन ज़मीन गा रही है कब से झूम-झूमकर,
तू आ मेरा सिंगार कर, तू आ मुझे हसीन कर!
अगर कहीं है स्वर्ग तो उतार ला ज़मीन पर!.... तू ज़िन्दा है

ये ग़म के और चार दिन, सितम के और चार दिन,
ये दिन भी जाएंगे गुज़र, गुज़र गए हज़ार दिन,
कभी तो होगी इस चमन पर भी बहार की नज़र!
अगर कहीं है स्वर्ग तो उतार ला ज़मीन पर!.... तू ज़िन्दा है

हमारे कारवां का मंज़िलों को इन्तज़ार है,
यह आंधियों, ये बिजलियों की, पीठ पर सवार है,
जिधर पड़ेंगे ये क़दम बनेगी एक नई डगर
अगर कहीं है स्वर्ग तो उतार ला ज़मीन पर!.... तू ज़िन्दा है

हज़ार भेष धर के आई मौत तेरे द्वार पर
मगर तुझे न छल सकी चली गई वो हार कर
नई सुबह के संग सदा तुझे मिली नई उमर
अगर कहीं है स्वर्ग तो उतार ला ज़मीन पर!.... तू ज़िन्दा है

SHOWERS OF BLESSINGS

There shall be showers of blessings, This is a promise of love,
There shall be seasons refreshing, Sent from the Saviour above

(Chorus)

Showers of blessings, Showers of blessing we need,
Mercy drops around us are falling, But for the showers we plead.

There shall be showers of blessings, Precious reviving again,
Over the hills and the valleys, Sound of abundance do rain

(Chorus)

There shall be showers of blessings, Send them upon us, Oh Lord !
Grant to us now a refreshing, Come and now honour thy word.

(Chorus)

There shall be showers of blessings, Oh! that today they might fall,
Now as to God we're confessing, Now as on our Lord we call.

(Chorus)

GOD’S LOVE !

God’s Love is so wonderful,
God’s Love is so wonderful,
God’s Love is so wonderful,
O wonderful Love!
So high, you can’t get over it,
So deep, you can’t get under it,
So wide, you can’t get around it,
O wonderful love!
God’s Love is so wonderful,
God’s Love is so wonderful,
O wonderful love!

PRAISE HIM !

Praise Him, Praise Him!
Praise Him, in the morning
Praise Him, in the noon- time,
Praise Him, Praise Him!
Praise Him till the Sun goes down.

Love Him, Love Him!
Love Him in the morning
Love Him in the noon- time,
Love Him, Love Him!
Love Him till the Sun goes down.

Thank Him, Thank Him,
Thank Him in the morning
Thank Him in the noon- time,
Thank Him, Thank Him!
Thank Him when the Sun goes down!
