An Old Prayer
Give us, Lord, a bit o'
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
And a tale and a book to help us along.
Give us, Lord, a chance
Our goodly best, brave, wise and free.
Our goodly best for
ourselves and others
Till all men learn to live as brothers.
