36. Lord, for tomorrow and its needs

8.4.8.4

Raymond:

T. Tertius Noble, 1917

Mary Xavier, 1877

Lord, for tomorrow and its needs

I do not pray;

Keep me, my God, from stain of sin,

Just for today.

Help me to labour earnestly

And duly pray;

Let me be kind in word and deed,

Father, today.

Let me be slow to do my will,

Prompt to obey;

Help me to sacrifice myself

Gladly, today.

Let me no wrong or idle word

Unthinking say;

Set thou a seal upon my lips

Through all today.

Let me in season, Lord, be grave,

In season gay:

Let me be faithful to thy grace,

Dear Lord, today.

And if today this life of mine

Should ebb away,

Give me thy Sacrament divine,

Father, today.

So for tomorrow and its needs

I do not pray:

Still keep me, guide me, love me, Lord,

Through each today.

Amen.
