Morning Prayer -- Kierkegaard

O Lord,
let Yourself be found with a good gift
to everyone who needs it,
that the happy may find courage
to accept Your good gifts,
that the sorrowful may find courage
to accept Your perfect gifts.
For to humans
there is a difference of joy and of sorrow,
but for You,
O Lord,
there is no difference in these things;
everything that comes from You
is a good and perfect
gift.
... Søren Kierkegaard (1813-1855)
