Dedicatory prayer at the site of the Stewart Tower. Given by Donnell B. Stewart on December 14, 1971.
Our Father in Heaven, Hallowed Be Thy Great Name. We unite at this time in spirit and purpose with thee. May we renew our thoughts and strengthen our intentions. We ask for thy blessing to be with all people of good intent. We ask for thy blessing upon all who carry on the work of this great educational institution. We ask for thy blessing to be with all who are gathered here on this occasion, on this beautiful day, at the site of this carillon tower to dedicate this building and the carillon. Asking for thy guidance and manifold blessings upon the lives of those who might be touched by the influence of this structure or this institution or who will take part in the presentation of music, we now dedicate this carillon tower in memory of all whose names are forever associated with this great institution as administrators, teachers, students or who may be associated in other capacities. We place it in thy kind care and keeping forever. In the worthy name of Our Redeemer Jesus Christ, Amen.
