1We bless Thee, Lord, for all this common life
Can give of rest and joy amidst its strife;
For earth and trees and sea and clouds and springs;
For work, and all the lessons that it brings.
2For Pisgah gleams of newer, fairer truth,
Which ever ripening still renews our youth;
For fellowship with noble souls and wise,
Whose hearts beat time to music of the skies;
3For each achievement human toil can reach;
For all that patriots win, and poets teach;
For the old light that gleams on history’s page,
For the new hope that shines on each new age.
4May we to these our lights be ever true,
Find hope and strength and joy forever new,
To heavenly visions still obedient prove,
The Eternal Law, writ by the Almighty Love! Amen.
