Power to soar above on eagle wings,
Power to smite with heaven’s thunder roar,
Power to lead with all that beauty brings,
Power to open yet each sturdy door;
Power to live and shine with brightest light,
Power to give and yet humbly receive,
Power to endure life’s cruelest fights,
Power to speak the truth and not deceive.
My children dear, may God grant you these gifts
That you stand proud when voice to mighty calls
And serving passion, never stray amiss
Succumbing so to lusts the weak befall;
May conscious courage guide your every day
That you may show the world a better way.
