Count Your Blessings

“I asked God for strength,

that i might achieve.

I was made weak

that i might learn humbly to obey

“I asked God for health

that I might do greater things.

I was given infirmity

that I might do the 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 praises of men.

I was given weakness

that I might feel the need of God.

“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 men most richly blessed.”
