O Father, may we bear each hour
The flag of hope and peace unfurled,
And mirror forth Love's sacred power
To feed and bless a hungry world.
We shall not falter by the way
If we but place our trust in Thee,
Obeying gladly day by day
The living Truth that makes men free.
Help us to know that all is well
E'en though we wander through earth's shade,
To know that all Thy children dwell
Within Love's stronghold unafraid.
Teach us to follow fearlessly
The way our gentle Master trod,
'Twill lead us safely home to Thee,
O loving Father-Mother, God.
