The Courage, The Strength, and the Wisdom
Give me courage to try to right the wrongs
I can right; give me strength to accept those
Wrongs I cannot; and give me the wisdom
To know the difference. I could well suppose
This ancient saying to apply only
To outward rights and wrongs like politics,
Helping the hurt, the poor and the lonely
Or stopping wars and hunger, and yet it's
Within that all our problems seem to start.
The change we need is really change of heart.
