Help us to work and serve all mankind
Teach us to pray and do the things we should
In all we do give us strength and faith
To magnify Thy name in Thy wondrous Grace

Revive our hearts and our minds to believe
That Your word is fee to meet our needs
Grant us Thy peace, joy and harmony
And wisdom for each day along the way
Look unto Thee that our eyes may see
Love for our fellow man to live, serve, honor Thee
