A Prayer

God give me strength to live my lifeAs Thou intendest it to be—Not bound by avarice or by strife,From harshness and oppression free;Above the grasp of greed for wealth,Above the foolish urge for place,Above the bickerings and the stealthThat only lead to self-disgrace.

Oh, may the wealth I long to gain,The only lofty place I ask,Be coin of love to ease some pain,Be room for lowly, quiet taskOf helping others on their way.Then I shall know the blessed peaceThat grows in fullness day by day,As grace and unselfed love increase.
