But more than wisdom, give me

The Yes Prayer

Anthony DeStefano

With praise for all You are, Lord
And thanks for all you bless;
Lord, grant these ten petitions
With Your eternal Yes:

Please show me that You’re there
When I can’t see Your face;
Send troubled souls my way
Their wounds I will erase.

Let me see with your eyes
My mind with your thoughts fill;
But more than wisdom give me
The strength to do Your will.

Bless me with abundance
Then put me to the test;
Gladly will I give you
Much more than I possess.

Send me your tranquility
In troubled times and calm;
With loving arms sustain me
Through suffering and harm.

Forgive me for my sins
Though legion they may be;
When death and evil triumph
Bring good from tragedy.

But most of all reveal
The meaning of my life
The purpose of my glories
The reasons for my strife
My destiny in Heaven
No tears to flow again
My God, please grant me all;
In Christ our Lord,
Amen.
