Inscription.
(Seedling in 1768)
Prayer of Dedication
O glorious God, Whose perfect beauty
The wonderful design of all Thy work proclaim
Bless, we beseech Thee, this beautiful white oak,
Which we now name "The Trinity Oak"
And accept as Your gracious gift to this land
In remembrance of Your mighty power
Which extends throughout all creation;
And we ask that You continue to beautify this place
Of sanctuary with Your presence so that everything
That abides here will show forth Thy glory,
Through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
                                   John F. Hird, Rector
