Help me, O Lord, to remember that three feet make one yard, sixteen ounces one pound, four quarts one gallon and sixty minutes one hour. Help me to do business on the square. Make me sympathetic toward the person who has broken in the struggle. Keep me from taking an unfair advantage of the weak, or from selling my self-respect for a profit. Blind my eyes to the petty faults of others, but reveal to me my own. Deafen my ears to the rustle of unholy skirts, and help me to live, day by day, in such a way that I shall be able to look across the table at my family who is such a blessing to me, and have nothing to conceal.
And when comes the sound of low music, the scent of sweet flowers, and the crunch of footsteps on the gravel, make the ceremony short, and the epitaph simple - "Here lies a person . . . one who was of service to others.
