Eternal Father, we have been blessed by Thy guidance to this time. Thou hast given us hope and strength when by our own efforts we would have failed. For friends; for hardships overcome; and the inspiration of all who have taught us here, we thank Thee. We shall try by our life in the days to come to repay the debt we owe the past. We pray that Thy spirit, which we have felt here in many ways, will be in our hearts always.
