Songs of the Makers of Canada
Laval: High-Priest of Knowledge

Laval, High Priest of Knowledge, who first seann'd
The years to come, and saw the pow'rs that lay
Within the docile hearts thy truth should sway,
Whose work is puissant still upon this land,
Thou wast the Spirit's patient paragon
In those far, pristine, mercenary days
When thou alone wast master of the ways
That lead into the vale of Avalon.

Lo, now a people learned in all the arts
Greet thee today across the distant vale
Of Truth, where dwells obscure the Holy Grail.
And tho they commerce oft upon the marts
Of specious gain, they look beyond the mist
To thee, their first great Educationist.
