[Written for the Sentinel]

A Prayer

Teach me obedience, O Father-Mother God,
That I may humbly pass 'neath Thy correcting rod.
And may I enter and abide Thy truth within,
Be cleansed by purifying fire from earthborn sin.
Teach me to love and serve but Thee; to learn the way
To love my neighbor as myself, each passing day.
And may I greet with gratitude the rising sun,
And rest at night in joy and peace, from work well done.
