1.  God of the nations, hear our call;

Thou who art Father of us all,

Show us our part in Thy great pan

For the vast brotherhood of man.

2.  Let us with earnestness of youth

Care only for pursuit of truth.

O may we feel Thy guidance still

And heed the impulse of Thy will.

3.  Thus, as Thy Kingdom cometh here,

Shall it throughout the world draw near;

And loyalty to country then

Shall reach out to include all men.
