Only My Daily Bread
Two things I ask of you, Lord;
do not refuse me before I die:
Keep falsehood and lies far from me;
give me neither poverty nor riches,
but give me only my daily bread.
Otherwise, I may have too much and disown you
and say, “Who is the Lord?”
Or I may become poor and steal,
and so dishonor the name of my God.
Just meet my needs for the day, Lord.
Evil could result from having
either too much or too little.
Who dares to offer this prayer?
