Listen to Jill recite her poem below:
Lord, give me a wise discerning heart
To judge the hardest cause,
Give me a prudent knowing heart
A copy, Lord, of yours.
And grant me health to serve you, Lord,
And give me wealth to spend,
On other’s needs than on my own
So want and hunger end.
And give me just as much success
As I can handle well,
And send me just enough distress
So that my head won’t swell.
And keep me safe if possible
In order to survive,
The evil men might do to me
As long as I’m alive.
That I might have a heart to praise my God
Give me the servant’s eye,
Grant me a humble attitude
That lifts you up on high.
Grant me that I may give to Thee
A life that’s wholly thine,
I take the life you offer me
And give you all of mine.
