When little things would irk me, and I grow 
Impatient with my dear ones, make me know

How in a moment joy can take its flight 
And happiness be quenched in endless night.

Keep this thought with me all the livelong day 
That I may guard the harsh words I might say

When I would fret and grumble, fiery hot, 
At trifles that tomorrow are forgot --

Let me remember, Lord, how it would be 
If these, my loved ones, were not here with me.
