Prayer for contentment with my lot
(after John Bunyan 1628-88, Pilgrim’s Progress)
Lord, help me to know that:
He who is down need fear no fall,
He that is low no pride;
He that is humble, ever shall
Have God to be his guide.
Make me content with what I have
Little be it or much;
And Lord, contentment ever crave
Because Thou savest such.
