While the world is still turning, and while the daylight is broad, Oh Lord, I pray, please give everyone what he or she hasn’t got. Give the timid a horse to ride, give the wise a bright head, Give the fortunate money and about me don’t forget. While the world is still turning, Lord, You are omnipotent, Let those striving for power wield it to their heart's content. François Villon's Prayer (by Bulat Okudjava, 1963).
