God, Grant me the Serenity to accept things
I cannot change, courage to change the things I can
and the wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time, Enjoying one moment at a time,
Accepting hardship as the pathway to peace.
Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is,
not as I would have it.
Trusting that He will make all things right if I
surrender to His will.
That I may be reasonably happy in this life,
And supremely happy with Him forever in the next.
