Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change
the 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 a pathway to peace;
taking as Jesus did, this sinful world as it is;
not as I would have it;
trusting that you will make all things right
if I surrender to your will;
so that I may be reasonable happy in this life
and supremely happy with you forever in the next.
