From "Finlandia" by Jan Sibelius
Mother of Truth, we proudly pledge to thee
Undying love and steadfast loyalty.
From thee we learned the wondrous work of God,
His goodness, grace, and holy power;
Clear has thou shown that pathways must be trod;
All fearless now we brave life's hour!
Though failure frown, though kindly fortune smile,
Firm our advance, naught can us e'er beguile.
To honor bound, to love and virtue sworn,
Lift we our voices in full acclaim
Our lives shall thee with noble deeds adorn;
Hail Providence! We praise thy name!
