Humble servant of mankind
And servant of the Lord
Thy God has summonsed you above
To reap thy great reward.
Say a prayer for your people
As down on us you look
May we find guidance from above
By your example, and the Book
May we to our Lord appeal
For salvation be our goal
May the Goalkeeper Pope be
The savior of my soul.
That’s being kicked round the pitch of life
By demons and devils: All
The vices that make life so nice:
What they are, let us, them call.
You tonight rest your head with God
For eternity to sleep
The pitch we play is life today
Our goalposts safely keep!
