"I can resist everything...except temptation"

Dear God
I ask your forgiveness
For all the things I’ve done
I know that life’s been good to me
And I’m not the only one

I ask that you watch over me
In everything I do
I promise that when I’m alone
I’ll always think of you

I ask that you remind me
Of everything I am
I don’t know much about the world
Sometimes the good turns bad

I ask that you remember
To change the leaves this fall
To keep my family close to me
To watch the young grow tall

I ask that when December comes
There is a little snow
And when I crawl in bed tonight
I’m hoping that you’ll know

I am content in every way
With life and air and you
If ever I do tend to stray
I trust you’ll hold me true
