Father, I have knowledge
So I pray you’ll show me now
How to use it wisely
And find a way somehow
To make the world I live in
A little better place...
And make life with its problems,
A bit easier to face --
Grant me faith and courage
And put purpose in my days –
And show me how to serve Thee
In the most effective ways.
So all my education,
My knowledge and my skill,
May find their true fulfillment
As I learn to do Thy will.
And may I ever by aware
In everything I do
That knowledge comes from learning
And wisdom comes from you.

Class of 2021

To Our Son On Your Graduation

I held him in my arms on the day he was born, and dreamed about his future and the things that he would learn.
Now he stands before me, a handsome young man,
I find myself reluctant to let go of his hand.
But nothing can diminish the pride that’s in my heart,
Least of all the knowledge that it’s time for us to part.
So now I give my only son the space to find his way – 
And celebrate the future on his Graduation Day.

like the sun that lights the sky,
