Memorial Lines


The Nation all with one accord
     Bows broken hearted now to pray;
“Deliver us from evil, Lord
     Help us thy precepts to obey.”

“Lord, God of Heaven, grant us relief
     In this our dark sad way;
From out the valley of our grief,
     Lead, Kindly Light, our steps today.” [49][50]

“Up to bright hills of hope away,
     Lead us most Holy One;
And give our souls the strength to say;
     ‘Thy will be done.’”
