If God asks you what you want, con—
sider as you make reply
God already knows what’s fitting.
Don’t be clever, don’t be sly.
Genies out of lamps are said to
offer wishes. That’s not God.
What’s before you is not chance, it’s
meant to fit you for a job.
Give some thought to your commission.
Keep the ones you’ll serve in mind.
With God’s pleasure, your decision
will result in joyous life.
