AN ANCIENT PRAYER
Give me a good digestion, Lord,|
And also something to digest
Give me a healthy body, Lord,
With sense to keep it at it's best.
Give me a healthy mind, o Lord,
To keep the good and pure in sight,
Which seeing wrong is not appalled
But finds a way to set it right.
Give me a mind that is not bored,
That does not whimper whine or sigh.
Don't let me worry overmuch
About that fussy thing called I.
Give me a sense of humour Lord,
Give me the grace to see a joke,
To get some happiness from life
And pass it on to other folk.
