A Prayer Found in Chester Cathedral


Chester Cathedral

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.
