Just for Today

Just for Today

Morning Prayer from St. Augustine’s Prayer Book

Lord, for to-morrow and its needs,
I do not pray
Keep me, my God, from stain of sin
Just for to-day.

Let me both diligently work,
And duly pray.
Let me be kind in word and deed,
Just for to-day.

Let me be slow to do my will,
Prompt to obey
Help me to sacrifice myself
Just for to-day.

And if to-day my tide of life
Should ebb away,
Give me thy Sacraments divine,
Sweet Lord to-day.

So for to-morrow and its needs
I do not pray,
But keep me, guide me, love me, Lord,
Just for to-day.
