that its benefits to future generations could not be estimated. Feeling as he did he would have esteemed it an honor that his hymn was givern a place on the programme for the dedication exercises. But he died without that knowledge, four days before the dedication services. Will you please accept from my sister and myself, expressions of the appreciation and gratification we know our father would have felt; and who allow us to assure you that his daughters feel very deeply the tribute to his worth and ability.

[Tune?] - Italian Hymn
O Thou great God of Love, Ruler below, above, Thou Friend of men; Accept this gift we bring, The songs of praise we sing, And grant our prayers, O King. Amen, amen.
Love's work has here been wrought, Embalmed with holy thought And strong desire. Come, Lord, and own it Thine; Come with Thy power benign, And bless its great design, Its life inspire.
Come, Lover of mankind, Would here the youthful [mind?] In Thine own way. To searching hearts draw nigh, Give wisdom from on high, And with Thy watchful eye O'er all hold sway.
As here Thy laws men lern, May they Thy love discern, Thy wisdom own. The wonders of the sea, Of earth and sky, shall be Mute witnesses of Thee, Thy power make known.
Come, then, O Lord, and take This treasured gift, and make Its life sublime. For truth, an arm of might; A bulwark for the night; A nation's pride; a light To every clime.
Here let Thy praise resound, Love, joy and peace abound, Good will to men; And this memorial be Sacred to liberty, To love of men and Thee. Amen, amen.
