Give us clean hands, clean words and clean thoughts, O God.
Help us to stand for the hard right against the easy wrong.
Save us from habits that would harm.
Teach us to work as hard and play as fair in your sight alone as if all the world saw.
Forgive us when we are unkind, and help us to forgive those who are unkind to us.
Keep us ready to help others at some cost to ourselves.
Send us chances to do a little good every day, and so to grow more like Christ.
(Rev. William DeWitt Hyde, 1858-1917)
“The more I give away anything, the more of that thing I get.”
