The power of God through Grace.
The Mother we serve is Liberty,
That sacred right of the human race.
The Mother we honor is she who bore us,
Who drew milk from her own blood.

As grateful children should,
And respect our Mother Nature,
Pledging ourselves to Mother Liberty's light,
That the children of the mothers beside us
Can have a future which shines bright.”
