The Serenity Prayer

Words by Reinhold Niebuhr, ~1932

This is another standard used in 12-step meetings, and again, when looking for a musical version of it, I found some that I liked parts of, but none that seemed just right to me, so this is the version that I came up with.

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change;
The courage to change the things I can;
And grant me the wisdom to know the difference.
Oh, grant me serenity …
A—men.
