Junior Collect, Pledge and Hymn

The Junior Collect

We thank Thee, Our Father, for all things beautiful.

Open our minds to the beauty that is music and teach us to remember it as part of Thy great goodness to us.

Help us to grow each day unto the stature of Thy Grace and keep our hearts so tuned with Thy Heart that our lives may resound Thy very music in the melody of lovely living and in service that is Song.

. . .May Belle Cole

The Junior Pledge

I acknowledge my indebtedness to good music;
I know that the music of a nation inspires or degrades;
I realize that acquaintance with great music instills
a love of that which brings courage and lofty ideals
and tends toward clean, noble living.
I promise to do all in my power to make America truly musical.

The Junior Hymn (Lasst Uns Erfreuen)

Lord of all life, our God and King,
Hear Thou the hymn thy children sing,
Alleluia, Alleluia!
Rich in our heritage we stand,
Forward we press at Thy command,
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!

We would seek beauty, search for truth,
Inspired by Thee through all our youth.
Alleluia, Alleluia!
Bless Thou our effort, guide our will,
Thy love our inspiration still.
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!
