Grant Me The Serenity

Grant Me The Serenity

Life, is it really worth living for ?
 I did not know until God opened the door

 And there he was in the shape of a big, bright, spiritual light;
 He said, Son, believeth in me and everything shall be alright

 So every morning I get down on my knees and pray;
 God, please let me have another clean and sober day

 Though I often have thoughts of suicide
 And tell the Lord: oh, how hard I've tried

 Then I asked him for a way out of this bind;
 With a silent voice, he answered: my son, one day at a time

 Before I called upon him I had one foot in the grave
 but like he told me, believeth in him an thou shalt be saved

 When my mind and nerves become idle
 I become secluded and read the bible

 So now I am saved and will always wear his sign
 And will never forget the blessing he placed in mind

 Now that I've found myself and my goal
 With dignity and pride I can shout out, no !

 No one wants to be a drug or suicidal fanatic;
 So remember, that's life through the eye's of an addict
