Teacher’s Prayer

I want to teach my students 
how to live this life on earth.
To face its struggles and its strife
and to improve their worth

Not just the lesson in a book
or how the river flow.
But to choose the proper path
wherever they may go.

To understand eternal truth 
and know the right from wrong
and gather all the beauty
of a flower and a song.

For if I help the world to grow
In wisdom and in grace
Then I shall feel that I have won 
and I have filled my place.

And so I ask your guidance, God.
That I may do my part for character and confidence
and happiness of heart.
