For each day of life we thank you,
Lord, the giver of all days;
and with hearts filled with thanksgiving,
we would serve you, Lord, always.
As in days of youthful vigor,
may we in all later years
know the joys of useful purpose.
Free us, Lord, from anxious fears.
Give us dreams and inner vision
of a new world to be gained,
where all people live together,
by each other's love sustained.
May the insights gained from living
be a light upon the way,
guiding us, and those to follow,
to a brighter, better day.
