Giver of life, give me strength
that I may do my work with
consideration, true to the goal
to watch out for those whose life
have been entrusted to my care,
Keep my lips from
offending words, give me clear
eyes, to see the good in others.
Give me gentle hands, a kind
heart and patient soul. That
through your grace pain is
soothed, sick bodies are being
healed, the mind is strengthened,
may the living rise again.
~ Florence Nightingale
