We praise and thank Thee, Father, for the gift of music. Through us, as channels of Thy grace, may this blessed legacy be shared with all mankind.
Grant that we may exemplify in our lives the harmony of Thy great purpose for us.
Give us magnitude of soul, and such understanding hearts, that we, who make music, may be as players upon rightly tuned instruments responding to Thy leading.
Let us with renewed consecration dedicate ourselves to the purpose of our Federation, to bring the spiritualizing force of music to the inner life of our nation. Open our minds, that divine knowledge and wisdom may teach us how to best execute our pledge.
CLUB SONG
Let Music, lovely Music Be the theme of our endeavor;
Heav’ns gift, celestial Music —
May it link us all forever.
Ee our aim to so present it
That its beauty may enthrall;
And the sweetness Heav’n hath lent it
Be a joy that reacheth all.
Let Music, lovely Music
Be the theme of our endeavor, heav’ns gift, celestial Music —
May it link us all forever.
