This is my prayer

 

This is my prayer to thee my Lord

Strike, strike at the root of penury in my heart

Give me strength lightly to bear my joys and sorrows.

Give me 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 daily trifles

Give me the strength to surrender my strength to thy

Will with love.

This is my prayer to thee my Lord

Strike, strike at the root of penury in my heart
