True Service

Wake us to see the pillar of Thy fire!Let us not sit, O God, in dotish ease,Lest liberty and courage may expire.Destroy our selfishness, our will to pleaseOur sensual selves; lift us again to seeThe joy of sacrificing self, the loveOf virtues. Give such zeal that evils fleeBefore a valor that can rise aboveAll fear, trusting triumphantly in Thee.Helps us to see all power in Thee alone;That to align ourselves with Thee is might.Help us to seek no other cause, but ownThe joyous duty to establish right.While any dare their all to give truth birth,Civilization cannot die from earth.
