My father this, I ask of thee,
Knowing that thou, will grant my plea
For this and only this I pray
Strength for today just for today.
Strength forthe present hour and need,
This given then I am blest indeed.
For everyday as it comes will bring,
Sufficient strength for everything.
Strength for each trial and task,
What more my father should I ask.
Just, as I need it day by day,
Strength for my weakness this I pray.
