I'll go where you want me to go, dear Lord, 
Real service is what I desire, 
I'll say what you want me to say, dear Lord, 
But don't ask me to sing in the choir.

I'll say what you want me to say, dear Lord, 
I like to see things come to pass, 
But don't ask me to teach anywhere, dear Lord, 
I'd much rather stay in my class.

I'll give what you want me to give, dear Lord, 
I yearn for the kingdom to thrive, 
I'll give you some pennies or nickels, dear Lord, 
But please don't ask me to tithe.

I'll read what you want me to read, dear Lord, 
If genealogy isn't implied, 
I never did like to search books, dear Lord, 
For names of people who've died.

I'll go where you want me to go, dear Lord, 
Yes--I'll go most anywhere 
But I've got too many tasks to do, dear Lord, 
To go down to Welfare Square.

I'll give what you want me to give dear Lord, 
And I'm sure I'll never begrudge it, 
But I haven't the money to spare, dear Lord, 
To pay in the Welfare or Budget.

Yes, I'll go where you want me to go, dear Lord, 
I'll serve you with all my might, 
But don't ask me to go to the temple, dear Lord, 
Because I'm far too busy each night.
