The College Hymn


Lord of Light! look down upon us,
Hearken as we cry to Thee;
Lighten thou our minds and lead us,
Thine now to be.

Lord of Life, the Bounteous Giver!
Evermore our portion be;
Guide our feet thro’ all life’s pathway
Nearer to Thee.

Lord of love! who only knowest
All the years that are to be;
Keep us pure amid temptation
Looking to Thee.

When from “Wesley” far we scatter,
Servants true for Thee to be,
Home at last, oh safely bring us
Father to Thee.

James Grubb, 1866-1937
