A Merry Heart...

O Lord, give me a good digestion as well as something to digest.
Give me health of body as well as the sense to keep it healthy.
Give me a holy soul, O Lord, which keeps its eyes on beauty and purity,
So that it will not be afraid on seeing sin.
Give me a soul that knows nothing of boredom, groans, and sighs.
Never let me be overly concerned for this inconstant thing that I call me.
Lord, give me a sense of humour,
So that I may take some happiness from this life and share it with others. Amen.
--Saint Thomas More
