I Asked

I Asked

 

 

        I asked for strength that I might achieve;
He made me weak that I might obey.
        I asked for health that I might do great things;
He gave me grace that I might do better things.
        I asked for riches that I might be happy;
He gave me poverty that I might be wise.
        I asked for power that I might have the praise of others;
He gave me weakness that I might feel a need of God.
        I asked for all things that I might enjoy life;
He gave me life that I might enjoy all things.
        I received nothing I had asked for;
He gave me all that I had hoped for.
