Listen to Prayer of the paratrooper:

Prayer of the Paratrooper

Give me, O Lord, what remains Thine;
What no one ever asks of Thee.
I do not ask Thee for rest,
Nor tranquillity,
Neither of the soul nor of the body.
I do not ask Thee for riches,
Nor success,
Nor even health.
So many ask you for these, O Lord,
Thou shouldst no longer have anything left to give.


Give me Lord, what remains Thine.
Give me that witch all of us refuse.
I want insecurity and restlessness,
I want struggle and trouble,
And grant them to me, My lord, forever.
Because I will not always have the courage
To ask of Thee for them.


Give me, O Lord, what remains thine,
Give me what others do not want;
But give me also the Courage,
And the Strength,
And the Faith.

André ZIRNHELD French Paratrooper — 1942
