Anthem text
This I know and I believe.
"I know that life is given us
so that we may grow in love.
And I believe that God is in me
as the sun is in the color
and the fragrance of the flower,
I know that life is given us
that we may grow in love.
And I believe that God is in me
as the sun is in the color
and the fragrance of the flower,
the light in my darkness,
the voice in my silence."

–Helen Keller
