[Written for the Sentinel]

A Prayer—Before Our Lectures

O Life! Athirst for Thee earth's children come,The maimed, the halt, the blind, the deaf, the dumb;And Thy pure Word is here for all to-day,Not one who hears, need empty go away;Ne'er shall Thy Word be spoken, Lord, in vain;It shall accomplish, time and time again.

O Truth! Athirst for Thee earth's children wait,Grateful and eager at the heavenly gate;For Truth has come, as Christ, Truth, came before,To give us Life abundant, more and more!Never Thy Word returneth void to Thee,But shall fulfill Thy will eternally!

We'd love to hear from you!
