I Asked God

Print this page    

I asked God for strength That I might achieve I was made weak to humbly obey

 

I asked for health That I might do greater things I was given infirmity that I might do better things

 

I asked for riches That I might be happy I was given poverty that I might be wise

 

I asked for power That I might have the praise of men I was given weakness that I might feel the need of God

 

I asked for all things That I might enjoy life I was given life that I might enjoy all things

 

I got nothing that I asked for But everything I had hoped for

 

Almost despite myself, My unspoken prayers were answered.

 

I am among all man Most richly blessed.
