Asked and Given

I asked for strength, that i might achieve
I was made weak, that I might learn humbly to obey.

I asked for health, that I might do greater things
I was given infirmity, that I might do better things.

I asked for riches, that I might be happy
I was given poverty, that I might be wise.

I asked for power, that I might have the praise of men
I was given weaknes, that I might feel the need of God.

I got nothing that I asked for, but everything I had hoped for.
