Prayer of Thanksgiving

Written by

by Riverda Harding Jordan (Yale 1893); tune: Netherlands folk song


Our horses we ridden are here for Thanksgiving
For conquer this persees and blessings divine
Our matter of purple we raise to thy glory
Indeed we find our strength
For may we be thine.

Our white star will guide us
By purposeful living
Your guiding perfect with three steps in one

We pray thee to strengthen our Phi Gamma Delta
To Multiply her days in the name of thy Son.
