To live not long but well I pray,
Clean, upright, honest and sincere.
Let me be big in little things,
And brave when trials come.
Let me neither condemn nor scorn my weaker brother;
But always know he does the best he can,
And that none but God
Can completely understand.
If sickness, failure or suffering should be my Fate,
Give me the Courage to meet
Each as a soldier, bravely,
And when the last great Adventure comes
May I go Smiling?
