Delta Prayer s14 DELTA SIGMA THETA SORORITY, INC. O Heav’nly Father, Pour on us Thy Spirit. Send us Thy blessings In this hour with Thee. Grant us Thy fullness, Father, we implore Thee, Bless our Sorority. When daylight dies, And o’er us calm is hovering, Come to us then And whisper words of peace. Let us not close our eyes in restless slumber, Bid all our sorrows cease. Make us to know The richness of Thy love. Help us to live As ideal Deltas should. Then when our task on earth, O Lord, is ended, Grant us a home above. O hear our prayer, Father, hear our prayer. Amen. Not how did she die, but how did she live? Not what did she gain, but what did she give? These are the units to measure the worth Of a woman as a woman, regardless of birth. Not what was her church, nor what was her creed? But had she befriended those really in need? Was she ever ready, with a word of good cheer, To bring back a smile, to banish a tear? Not what did the sketch in the newspaper did say, But how many were sorry when she passed away?
