Lyrics:

Oh Father, may I serve thee with my heart, with my might, and my mind.
How I long to be thy instrument to help thee save mankind.
Untried and young, with unlearned tongue, thy priesthood yet I bear--
Oh send me forth that while on earth thy gospel I may share.;

Oh Father, in humility may I praise thy holy name.
Rejoicing in the priviledge that I may bear the same.
Untried and young, with unlearned tongue, thy priesthood yet I bear--
Oh send me forth that while on earth thy gospel I may share.

                  May I confound evil on the earth as it is above,
                  And submit my will to thine, and be filled with thy love.

Oh Father, in humility may I praise thy holy name.
Rejoicing in the priviledge that I may bear the same.
Untried and young, with unlearned tongue, thy priesthood yet I bear--
Oh send me forth that while on earth thy faith, thy love,
                       thy truth, thy blessings share.
