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

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

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

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.
