Christ stilling the waves

The Trumpeteer

An Old English 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 o' 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.
