from    "Goodbye Mr. Chips"


Here are the words to the song that Mrs Chips (Petula Clark) sang in the church - almost drowning out the Boys' Choir with the enthusiasm with which she sang this song : 


DID I FILL THE WORLD WITH LOVE

In the morning of my life
I shall look to the sunrise
At the moment in my life when the world is new
And the Blessing I shall ask is that God shall grant me
To be Brave and Strong and True
And to fill the world with love my whole life through.

And to fill the world with love (x3)
My whole life through.

At the noontime of my life
I shall look at the sunshine
At the 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.

And to fill the world with love (x3)
My whole life through.

In the autumn of my life
I shall look to the sunset
At the moment in my life when my days are few
And the Question I shall ask only you can answer
Was I Brave and Strong and True?
Did I fill the world with love my whole life through?

Did I fill the world with love (x3)
My whole life through?



Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure."
