The Prayer Perfect
Dear Lord! Kind Lord! Gracious Lord!
I pray though wilt look on all I love, Tenderly today!
Weed their hearts of weariness, Scatter every care.
Dow a wake of Angel Wings Winnowing the air.
Bring unto the sorrowing All release from pain;
Let the lips of laughter Overflow again;
And with all the needy, O divide, I pray,
This vast treasure of content, That is mine today!
