Peter C. Lutkin (1858–1931)


Almighty Lord, with one ac­cord
We of­fer Thee our youth,
And pray that Thou would’st give us
The war­fare of the truth.

Thy cause doth claim our souls by name,
Because that we are strong;
In all the land, one stead­fast band,
May we to Christ be­long.

Let fall on ev­ery col­lege hall
The lus­ter of Thy cross,
That love may dare Thy work to share
And count all else as loss.

Our hearts be ruled, our spir­its schooled
Alone Thy will to seek;
And when we find Thy bless­èd mind,
Instruct our lips to speak.
