Lord, you have seen fit to shield this Thy servant
From all temptations and traps
Of wealth, fame, and worldly success.
For this I thank you.
Thank you for granting me the grace
Of a far superior station in life,
In which I am neither in plenty nor in want,
But gratefully resting in your faithful provision
And of your people's generosity.
Thank you for letting me use my gifts
To bless the few and the broken,
And for preserving me from the pride
Of catching the attention of the many.
You, O Lord, are far too good to me.
