1 Son of the living God! thy hands
no human toil disdained;
an earthly father's wise commands
thy daily work ordained.
2 Son of the carpenter, receive
this humble work of mine;
worth to my meqanest labor give,
by joining it to thine.
3 End of my ev'ry action thou,
in all things thee I see;
accept my hallowed labor now;
I do it unto thee.
4 Thy bright example I pursue,
to thee in all things rise;
may all I think, or speak, or do
be one great sacrifice.
5 Careless through outward cares I go,
from all distraction free;
my hands are but engaged below,
my heart is still with thee.
