Honor, and love, and truth,
Bright joys and dreams of youth,
Thou, Lord, in pitying ruth,
Oh! let them save us!

Hear! for our cause is just
Hear! for our children's dust--
God of our fathers' trust,,
Bring thy salvation!
Hasten, O Lord! the day;
Point thou through clouds our way,
And by Truth's steadfast ray
Lead home thy nation!

Christmas, 1863.
