O Brilliant star of the Orient dazzling bright,
Thy luster floods our native country’s night;
Thy lonely light that reached the heavenly height,
Her children steal to strive with main and might
O Father Agnel, angel from above,
Thy clients call Thee with such tender love,
Be Thou to us a help, protector, guide,
With that kind heart so willing and so wide.
With no pretense to greatness or to wealth,
With fragile body held by Thy soul’s health,
Thy bold endeavors steady and with strength,
Have won Thee fame abroad and where Thou dwelt.
