A Prayer Regarding Life's Trials
(from II Corinthians 12:9-10)

If they'll fit me for the skies
Where dwell all the redeemed,

If they'll drive me to my knees
To more fully on You lean,

If they'll build a faith in me
That shows the lost the light,

If they'll embolden troubled souls
Through my determined fight,

Then, Lord, grant me infirmities
Reproaches and distress

And in each one I will rejoice
And count myself as blessed.

In my weakness I'll exult,
For strong I'll really be

With the power of my blessed Lord
Resting upon me.
