Special Prayers for Universities and Colleges.

Hymn 579 (A. & M.)

Now thank we all our God.
With heart, and hands, and voices,
Who wondrous things hath done,
In Whom His world rejoices;
Who from our mother's arms
Hath bless d us on our way
With countless gifts of love,
And still is ours to-day.

O may this bounteous God
Through all our life be near us,
With ever joyful hearts
And blessed peace to cheer us;
And keep us in His grade,
And guide us when perplex'd,
And free us from all ills
In this world and the next.

All praise and thanks to God
The Father now be given.
The Son, and Him Who reigns
With Them in highest Heaven.
The One Eternal God,
Whom earth and Heav'n adore.
For thus it was, is now.
And shall be evermore.


Anthem "Stand up and Bless the Lord" (Goff.)
