FORENOON.
    I. SACRED MUSIC.
    O GOD, our Father’s God, whose care
    With blessings fills the circling year,
    Rememb’ring Thee in all our ways,
    We bring our Annual song of praise.

    We bless Thy name, ALMIGHTY GOD,
    Who giv’st us here a sure abode,
    For all the favor Thou hast shown,
    The State and Age we call our own,

    Here Freedom spreads her Banner wide ;
    Here Learning and Religion guide,
    By Heavenly Truth’s unfading ray,
    Our Youth in Wisdom’s narrow way.

    From Thee unnumbered blessings flow —
    Life, health and strength Thy hands bestow ;
    And every good Thy creatures share
    Springs from Thy providential care.

    From Thee we have our social ties,
    And all the bliss that they comprise ;
    On Thy support the nations stand,
    Obedient to Thy high command.

    Eternal Source of every joy !
    Well may Thy praise our lips employ,
    And all our powers unite to bless,
    The LORD, our Strength and Righteousness.

      Eternal are thy mercies, LORD,
      And Truth eternal is Thy word ;
      Thy praise shall sound from shore to shore,
      Till suns shall rise and set no more.

      Praise GOD from whom all blessings flow ;
      Praise Him all creatures here below ;
      Praise Him above y’ angelic host ;
      Praise FATHER, SON, and HOLY GHOST.
