Hear our prayer, O gracious Father,
Author of celestial good,
That Thy laws so pure and holy
May be better understood.
Armed with faith, may we press onward,
Knowing nothing but Thy will;
Conquering every storm of error
With the sweet words: Peace, be still.
Like the star of Bethlehem shining,
Love will guide us all the way,
From the depths of error's darkness
Into Truth's eternal day.
