Humble prayer

God our Father,
Through your kindness,
And no merit of mine,
You have offered me today,
To live and do with it
What I choose;
No gift can surpass this;
With it, I can have
Every other gift
That you will for me;
Without it, nothing else
Is possible;
How can I thank you enough
For this mighty gift!
If I thanked you
From now to bedtime,
That still would not be
I pray O Lord,
For your help
Not only to make the most
Of this day,
But to live it as you want;
Grant me the grace,
To live today as you command;
To use this day wisely
To bring you glory;
I make my humble prayer
Through Christ our Lord,
