John W. Chadwick, 1864
Eternal Ruler of the ceaseless round|
Of circling planets singing on their way;
Guide of the nations from the night profound
Into the glory of the perfect day;
Rule in our hearts, that we may ever be
Guided and strengthened and upheld by thee.

3. We would be one in hatred of all wrong,|
One in our love of all things sweet and fair,
One with the joy that breaketh into song,
One with the grief that trembles into prayer,
One in the power that makes thy children free
To follow truth, and thus to follow thee.
4. O clothe us with thy heavenly armour, Lord,
