Grant Me, O Master, by the grace,
To follow all the good and pure.
To be content with simple things.
To use my fellows – not as means, but as ends.
To serve them stalwartly,
In thought, word and deed.
Never to utter a word of hatred and shame,
To cast away selfishness and pride.
To speak no ill of others.
To have a mind at peace,
Set free from care and led astray from Thee,
Neither by happiness nor woe,
And keep me steadfast in it.
Thus only shall I please Thee and Serve Thee right.
