Land Of Our Birth,We Pledge Thee

Land of our birth, we pledge to thee

Our love and toil in the years to be,

When we are grown and take our place

As men and women with our race.

Father in heaven, who lovest all

O help thy children when they call;

That they may build from age to age

An undefiled heritage.

Teach us to rule ourselves alway,

Controlled and cleanly night and day;

That we may bring, if need arise,

No maimed or worthless sacrifice.

Teach us strength that cannot seek

By deed or thought to hurt the weak;

That, under Thee, we may posses

Man's strength to comfort man's distress.
