I Asked of God

Humbly I asked of God to give me joy,

To crown my life with blossoms of delight;

I pled for happiness without alloy,

Desiring that my pathways should be bright;

Prayerfully I sought these blessings to attain, -

And now I thank him that he gave me pain.

For with the pain and sorrow came to me

A dower of tenderness in act and thought;

And with the failure came a sympathy,

An insight success had never bought.

Father, I had been foolish and unblest

If thou had granted me my blind request!

Lucy Maud Montgomery
