lyrics

Serenity
Music and lyrics by Josh Goldberg, Glenn Goss, and Ben Foster, based on “Serenity Prayer” by Reinhold Niebuhr

I’ve been living in a fantasy
Anesthetizing my reality
for when you numb your pain, the joy you seek
disappears and falls away

I retreated from the ones I love
stopped counting blessings from my God above
but now I’m on my knees, I’ve had enough
Listen to me as I pray

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change
The courage to change all the things that I can and the wisdom to know the difference

When I wake up, it’s another day, and I don’t feel the need to run away
I can face the things I have to face, my God will see me through
I may not know what the future holds
If the streets are paved with sand or gold
but acceptance is the only road
I put my faith in You

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change
The courage to change all the things that I can and the wisdom to know the difference

We can change our lives
we can change ourselves
sometimes we want to hide, too scared to ask for help
but take pride you’re alive, and all you survived
anytime I’m feeling low, I lift my head to the sky

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change
The courage to change all the things that I can and the wisdom to know the difference
