Dearest God

Teach me to give,

and not to count the cost,

To toil

and not to seek for rest,

To labor

and to ask for reward,

To fight

and not to heed the wounds,

To abide

by the rules of discipline,

and fight

for justice to the last,

And to love

even those who we do hate,

So that one day

I may be worthy of thy love,

and my country.
