Representative Text

1 Here on the altar of true love,
We give ourselves anew;
One faith is ours, one God above,
One aim to will or do,
And O the flame that blazes bright,
And never waxes dim,
Is hearty love for God and right,
Inspired by love for him.

We consecrate ourselves anew,
Our all to him we give,
O may we do as he would do,
And love as he would love.

2 In union sweet we love to meet,
And feel “the tie that binds,”
It gives relief to weary feet,
And balm to fainting minds;
And O the common ties of earth
Are small compares with his,
For ours the bond of princely birth
The hope of heav’nly bliss. [Refrain]

3 We consecrate ourselves anew,
Our hearts best off’rings give,
Resolved to do as he would do,
And live as he would live;
And O we know we must succeed,
With such a Guide and Friend;
Our vows will blossom into deeds
And in fruition end. [Refrain]
