Lyrics:
1.  God of grace and God of glory,
    On Thy people pour Thy power;
    Crown Thine ancient church's story;
    Bring its bud to glorious flower.
    Grant us wisdom, grant us courage,
    For the facing of this hour,
    For the facing of this hour.

2.  Lo! the hosts of evil round us
    Scorn Thy Christ, assail Thy ways!
    From the fears that long have bound us
    Free our hearts to faith and praise.
    Grant us wisdom, grant us courage,
    For the living of these days,
    For the living of these days.

3.  Cure Thy children's warring madness,
    Bend our pride to Thy control;
    Shame our wanton, selfish gladness,
    Rich in things and poor in soul.
    Grant us wisdom, grant us courage,
    Lest we miss Thy kingdom's goal,
    Lest we miss Thy kingdom's goal.

4.  Set our feet on lofty places;
    Gird our lives that they may be
    Armored with all Christ-like graces,
    Pledged to set all captives free.
    Grant us wisdom, grant us courage,
    That we fail not them nor Thee!
    That we fail not them nor Thee!

5.  Save us from weak resignation
    To the evils we deplore;
    Let the gift of Thy salvation
    Be our glory evermore.
    Grant us wisdom, grant us courage,
    Serving Thee whom we adore,
    Serving Thee whom we adore.
