1 Grant me, Lord, serenity,
inward peace, tranquillity
to accept the daunting range
of the things I cannot change.

2 Grant me courage, Lord to do
all the tasks you wish me to:
courage to defy the strong,
putting right each glaring wrong.

3 Grant me wisdom to discern,
at each puzzling twist and turn,
when to wait, when to advance,
how to judge the difference.

4 Grant me powers beyond my own
which in Jesus Christ you've shown.
Life in all its fullness then
shall for sure be mine. Amen.
