An Old Prayer

Give us, Lord, a bit o' sun A bit o' work and a bit o' fun.

Give us in all the struggle and sputter Our daily bread and a bit of butter.

Give us health our keep to make And a bit to spare for other's sake.

Give us, too, a bit of song And a tale and a book to help us along.

Give us, Lord, a chance to be Our goodly best, brave, wise and free.

Our goodly best for ourselves and others Till all men learn to live as brothers.
