  • Give me the strength to just get through today
    To deal with this day’s concerns and nothing more
    Give me the courage to see it through to the end
    And don’t let me be blinded by my struggles
    Let me see the goodness in people and in those who care
    Give me the strength to deal with today’s fears
    And let tomorrow take care of itself
    Give me the heart to lend a helping hand to others
    As I pull myself up.
    Please just give me the strength to get through today
    And nothing more, is all I ask.
