Give me the words The patience to lead Give me the love To help hearts as they bleed. Give me one moment To dry just one tear One year in a lifetime One day in a year. Don’t let me linger When I should move on Don't let them suffer When I’m finally gone. Give me the wisdom To know I don’t know Give me potential To learn and to grow. Give me five seconds To fix what I’ve wrought Give me a heartbeat To learn what I forgot. Help me to walk When my legs will not stand Help me comprehend What I haven’t planned. Help me and heal me Let me walk if I’m lame Show me compassion That I might do the same.
