Sonnet- Give Me More Woes, Lord - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

'Give me O Lord, more woes, ' I don't say, 'No, '
'Give me thy grace to withstand them for Thee';
And if Thou Will'd that I should undergo,
Let me do so, for my Eternity.


'Give me 0 Lord more woes, for others' sake, '
'So that more souls can be saved from sure hell.'
And in the meantime, never me forsake;
I want to toll Heaven's Angelus bell.

'Give me 0 Lord, more woes, if I can take, '
'For joys or sorrows of this world are false, '
The devils' overtures are all but fake;
Help me to listen only to Thy calls.

'Give me 0 Lord, more woes, for I love Thee, '
'Let me too lift thy cross to Calvary, '
