8-5 Benediction

Benediction

 

Saint Ignatius of Loyola, Spain, 16th century (metric)

 

Teach us, good lord, to serve as you deserve;

To give you our all, not count the cost;

To fight, not heed the wounds with full reserve;

To toil and not seek for rest those lost;

To labor and not ask for a reward;

Knowing we do your will in full accord

Through God our strength and Jesus Chris our Lord.
