Father of love and might,
Send forth thy holy light
On us to shine ;
Be thou our Sovereign Lord,
And may thy Holy Word
Be to us shield and sword,
Master Divine.

Bound in one Brotherhood,
Owning one common blood,
Children of thine ;
Fill us with kindliness,
Prompt to relieve distress,
Wearing thy true impress,
Master Divine.
