Lord, help me make it through this day, all my days
I am just small helpless child, so fragile in your
Magnificent hand. Only You can make me big,
Only You can give me a tower of strength,
Only You I can call upon in my weakness
No one else can truly understand me
No one else knows fully what is inside
My heart, my mind
Lord, with all I am, with all what other
People see of me -- excellence or frailty -- I
Can only offer You who I am, who I was,
Who I will be; I can only offer You what I have
Gone through -- the aches, the tears, the happiness
And the sadness in my heart. Lord, please guide my
Mind to make the right choices, and keep it from
Hurting others. And if Thou would grant me
The good health I've been asking, I would make sure
To put it into good use. I am also asking for good health
For my loved ones and for people around me. May they
Not be blinded by the negative things in their life
Take good care of my father who is now in your arms, oh Lord.
Please tell him that we love him so much
And that it would give me great pleasure having him
With us once again, that his presence means
The world to me. But I am surrendering him to You
As I am surrendering myself to Your will, although
Sometimes I may not understand it and even fight it.
A loving father as You are, You could have stripped
The earth of all that is living with just a thought.
But You've let us continue proving ourselves and
Making ourselves worthy of love, worthy of You.
Nothing and no one else is as majestic as You are
And I am just a lowly creature begging that You
Never to leave my side.
