FAITH Give me a faith that I may know
A sincere wish to do Thy will,
A perfect rev' rence for Thy name,
My lips to praise, my heart to fill;
A steadfast confidence in Thy Word,
A line of conduct that will give
Obedience to Thy Holy Laws,
Pleasing to Thee in whom we live.

HOPE Give me a hope, a steadfast hope,
That sin nor strife can never take,
Nor terrors of grim death destroy,
That storms of fate can never shake;
Hope which unveils to mortal eyes
The mysteries of the heavenly goal,
A greater love that will express
The immortal longings of the soul.
Give me a sacred hope that gives
A comfort to declining years,
To trace the rainbow to the end,
Through mists of doubt or vale of tears.

CHARITY Give to my heart true charity,
To carefully preserve within,
The sacred flame Thou dost impart,
And purge my soul from every sin;
That sacred virtue which inspires
The breast with true beneficence,

All errors view with kindliness,
Rise in the scale of excellence.
Thy love shall be my tracing board,
Upon this love I'll lay my plans.
And reach up to the heights of God.
With purer heart and cleaner hands.
