Teach me Oh Lord, to be very kind,
To keep positive thoughts in my mind.
Teach me to love my "sisters and brothers"
Teach me to forgive hurt from all others.
Teach me to live my life the way I should,
Teach me what is wrong and what is good;
Teach me to be the person you want me to be,
Teach me about you, the Lord God, Almighty.
Teach me Oh Lord, what you want me to do,
I know that you want me to love everyone, that's true.
Teach me Oh Lord, to have Hope, Faith and Trust;
Teach me to love everyone and to be always just.
Teach me Oh Lord, to have patience too
And to give my burdens in prayer and send them to you.
Teach me Oh Lord, I have so much to learn,
Teach me Oh Lord, and let me stand firm.

They are new every morning;
