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 healthy mind, good Lord,
To keep the good and pure in sight;
Which seeing sin is not appalled,
But finds a way to set it right.
Give me a mind that is not bored,
That does not whimper, whine or sigh,
Don't let me worry over much
About the fussy thing called I.
Give me sense of humor, Lord;
Give me the grace to see a joke;
To get some happiness from life
And pass it on to other folk.
