This is my Prayer to Thee, my Lord —
Strike, Strike at the root of Penury in my Heart.
Give me the Strength lightly to bear my Joys and Sorrows
Give me the Strength to make my Love fruitful in Service.
Give me the Strength never to disown the Poor or Bend my Knees before insolent might
Give me the Strength to raise my Mind high above Trifles.
And Give me the Strength to Surrender my Strength to
Thy Will with LOVE.
—- TAGORE. —
For all that GOD, in Mercy, sends;
For Health and Children, Home and Friends;
For Comfort in the time of Need.
For Every Kindly Word and Deed,
For Happy Thoughts and Holy Talk,
For Guidance in Our Daily Walk —
For Everything GIVE THANKS.
