 O let me be more gracious,
As I pass along life' s way,
And leave more pleasant thoughts and deeds,
With the passing of each day.
To use the things that I possess,
In service full and free,
To sacrifice my smaller self,
That larger good may be.
To give true love and friendship,
That all may truly live,
And use my gifts and talents,
With the best I have to give.
To share with all God's children,
All worthwhile things that are,
To be less keen to criticize,
And know it' s better far.
That I should go the second mile,
Ever with friend or foe,
Never consider my selfish self,
Seek goodness,
will it so.
Take the bitter with the sweet,
The sunshine with the rain,
Never think of "what I want",
From all things wrong refrain.
To keep my faith both firm and strong,
To comfort those in need,
To help along my fellow men,
And do the gracious deed.
May God give me the strength of heart,
My tasks to e'er fulfill,
To do,
to think. to understand,
And do His blessed will.
