My Father, this I ask of Thee

November 2

My Father, this I ask of Thee;
Knowing that Thou wilt grant the plea,-
For this, and only this, I pray,
Strength for today—just for today.

I do not ask a lifted load,
Nor for a smooth and thornless road;
Simply for strength enough to bear
Life’s daily burdens anywhere.

Strength for the present hour and need—
This given, then I’m blest indeed;
For each day, as it comes, will bring
Sufficient strength for anything.

Strength for today, that I may make
Some sad souls glad, for Jesus’ sake;
Then they, with me, at eve shall say,
“Thank God for strength He gave today.”

Strength for each trial and each task,
What more, my Father, should I ask?
Just as I need it, day by day,
Strength for my weakness—this I pray.
     Eben E. Rexford
