Catholic Prayer In School: Teachers Prayer

James J. M.

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
