When we are in the kitchen
Busy with cooking and baking
With sugar and cream to enrich
Whatever we are making –
Let us not forget to be thankful,
Let not our minds go astray
When we fail in one or the other,
Or feel our life is all dismay.
We ask Thee not for riches, Lord
Or luxuries and food that’s rare
But to be a better mother
Is our eager earnest prayer.
Make our words a little kinder
Than the ones we spoke today
Teach us love and understanding
In all we think and do or say.
We ask Thee simply to humble
And lead us in the right road.
Help to guide our children rightly,
Give strength for each day’s load.
