Dear Father, Thou hast given so much to meOf healing peace, of crooked paths made plain,Of soaring thought, of comfort and of strength,Of plenty in the place of barrenness,Of friendship's pure and brightly-burnished gold,And silvern words of counsel, tender, wise;The beauty of the earth in winter white,And the glad, sweet blossoming days of spring;The comradeship of bird and stream and tree;The deep assurance of omnipotenceThat guards the purity and lovelinessOf all reality in pristine joy,Untouched by sin, impairment, or decay—So much of good hast Thou, in love, bestowed!Teach me to give.
