Give me strength


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 daily trifles.

And give me the strength
to surrender my strength to thy will with love.

By Rabindranath Tagore
