Give me,Divine Master
A Sincere love for my students,
And deep respect for each one’s unique gifts.
Help me to be a faithful and devoted teacher,
With my eyes on the good of those I serve,
May I be quick
Slow to condemn,
Eager to affirm and to forgive.
I accept each students from your hands,
I belive that everyone of them
Is a person of unique worth
Even when they themselves do not see it.
I know that I have the opportunity
To bring light and hope
A sence of mission and purpose.
To my young lives
I believe that you believe in me
And you stand by me
May we learn from the wisdom of the past
May we learn from life and from one another
May we above all
Learn from your guidance.
And from the lives of those who know you best.
For this is true learing
To know life as it should be lived
To know ourselves as we truly are
And to hear ourselves as we are
And to hear your voice in
every word we learn.
