1.  God of the moving years,

God of the marching days,

Thy music on our ears shall turn our fears to praise;

God of each singing heart,

God of each silent voice,

Thy beauty stands apart, above, beyond all art.

Accept the song we raise; let men rejoice.

2.  God of eternal peace,

God of undying life,

Thy mercy will not cease to bring release from strife.

God of each hungering soul,

God of each searching mind,

Thy laws alone control the power to make us whole.

Thou art the light of life for all mankind!
