This Is My Prayer

This Is My Prayer PoemThis Is My Prayer

Give me a pulsing heart to feel
The need of other hearts, and kneel
With them when lonely shadows steal
Across the way.

Give me a vibrant hand and strong
To right a weaker brother’s wrong,
Or smooth some tangled place along
His onward way.

Give me a spirit swift to greet,
And lay life’s incense at the feet
Of every soul I chance to meet
Upon the way.

Give me to feel with kindness rare,
Give me to act with courage fair,
Give me to bless. This is my prayer
Along the way.
