I should never want to take
For-granted all the pleas I make...
'Lord, help us seek the true and good
And fill our hearts with gratitude
Lord, keep us safe and watch, I pray
Our thoughts and actions; what we say
And help us this day not to waste
Its moments in dull, heedless haste
Lord, fill with gladness every task
And teach us what we ought to ask'
