Teacher’s Prayer


 I want to teach my students how

To live this life on earth

To face its struggles and its strife

And improve their worth

Not just the lesson in a book

Or how the rivers flow

But how 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.
