The Hymnal for the 2008 Spelling Bee

The winning word for the Scripps 2008 National Spelling Bee contest was: GUERDON.

I just happened to know that word from my familiarity with stanza 4 of Hymn #513 in The Lutheran Hymnal:

If I find Him, if I follow,
What His guerdon here?
"Many a sorrow, many a labor,
Many a tear."
