Serenity Prayer

I'm trying to get the most accurate translation possible for the serenity prayer. I would use it for a tattoo.

Here's the text and the translation I saw from Google Translate

God,Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,Courage to change the things I can,And wisdom to know the difference.
Here's the latin translation that I've found.
Dona mihi SERENITATEM accipere res quae non possum mutare,
FORTITUDINEM mutare res quae possum,
atque SAPIENTIAM differentiam cognoscere

Any help is good!

Thank you

Google Translate is no good at Latin.

Deus, confer mihi tranquillitatem animi qua patiar quae mutare non possum, et virtutem qua mutem quae possum, ac sapientiam qua internoscam ea.
