A GRADUATE'S PRAYER
Lord, as I go forth on this new road
help me carry my given load.
There are worlds to conquer
and dreams to dream -
There is a future for me ,
as it would seem.
I'll fill my niche, accomplish my task,
Lord, be with me, that's all I ask.
Grant that I be worthy of
your precious gift.
And use these talents well,
not go adrift.
Give me faith to serve
to be your follower in all
my days' convictions.
Let me not quest for greatness
but for truth 'til last,
And only then I dare begin
this journey so vast.
Future is Yours!
