Lord, when we are wrong, make us willing to change
and when we are right, make us easy to live with.
Give me a good digestion, Lord and also something to digest
Give me a healthy body, Lord with sense to keep it at its best.
Give me a mind that is not bored, that does not whimper, whine or sigh.
Don't let me worry overmuch about the fussy thing called I.
Give me a sense of humour, Lord, give me grace to see the joke
To get some happiness in life and pass it on to other folk.
