The Fivepenny Piece Lyrics

A Gradely Prayer

Give us, Lord, a bit o' sun
A bit o' work an' a bit o' fun
Give us all in t' struggle an' splutter,
Our daily bread an' a bit o' butter.

Give us health, our keep to make,
An' a bit to spare for poor folk's sake.
Give us sense (there's some of us duffers),
An' a heart to feel for all that suffers.

Give us, too, a bit of a song,
An' a tale an' a book to help us along.
An' give us our share o' sorrow's lesson,
That we may prove how grief's a blessin'

Give us, Lord, a chance to be
Our very best; brave, wise an' free.
Our very best for oursels an' others,
Till all men learn to live as brothers.
