Though a man be soiled
with the sins of a life time,
Let him but love me,
In utter devotion,
I see no sinner,
That man is holy.
Guard me, O Lord, from brooding over the sin I have committed:
let not my thoughts sink into the mire of my wrong doing, but free them
to offer Thee the pearl of good deeds.
If I have done much evil, grant
that I may balance it by doing much good. Help me to hurry over the prayer
"For my sin", and to meditate with joy and thankfulness, on the prayer
"Thou, O Lord, shall reign".
The Serenity Prayer
God grant me the serenity
To accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things
And the wisdom to know the difference.
