Prayer on an Autumn Morning

Help me, O Lord,
to live a quiet and peaceful live.
Strengthen me with gentleness of a falling leaf
though I walk in the midst of strife.

Restrain my tongue from speaking guile
even though I be accused and reviled.
Make my lips a source of grace
no matter what trials I may face.
Empower me to sing your praise
in my darkest nights and brightest days.

Neither let me arrogant nor lifted up with pride
but rather humble as the dew and faithful as the tide.

No matter what come to me,
no matter what life afford,
help me walk in quietness and peace
I pray by your grace, O Lord.
