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.
