Opening Ode

Hail, Eternal! By whose aid
All created things were made
Heaven & Earth Thy vast design
Hear us, Architect Divine

May our work begun in Thee,
Ever blest with order be;
And may we, when labours cease,
Part in harmony and peace.

By Thy Glorious Majesty,
By the trust we place in Thee;
By the badge and mystic sign,
Hear us, Architect Divine!

So mote it be.
