Wisdom of God, we would by Thee be taught;
Control our minds, direct our ev’ry thought.
Knowledge alone life’s problems cannot meet;
We learn to live while sitting at Thy feet.
Light of the world, illumine us we pray;
Our souls are dark, without Thy kindling ray;
Torches unlighted, of all radiance bare.
Touch them to flame, and burn in glory there!
Incarnate Truth, help us Thy truth to learn,
Prone to embrace the falsehood we would spurn;
Groping in error’s maze for verity,
Thou art the truth we need to make us free.
Unfailing love, we are so cold in heart,
To us Thy passion for the lost impart;
Give us thy vision of the need of men,
All learning will be used in service then.
Great King of kings this campus all is Thine,
Make by Thy presence of this place a shrine;
Thee may we meet within the classroom walls,
Go forth to serve Thee from these hallowed halls.
