A Beautiful Prayer

This is a poem taken from Tagore's Gitanjali
" This is my prayer to thee, my lord - strike, strike at the root of penury in my heart.
Give me strength lightly to bear my joys and sorrows.
Give me the strength to make my love fruitful in service.
Give me the strength never to disown the poor or bend my knees before insolent might.
Give me the strength to raise my mind high above daily trifles.
And give me strength to surrender my strength to thy will of love"
