My Prayer

Oh, wondrous inner flame that lights my way,
That guards my every faltering step and guides,
That ever in my heart of hearts abides,
And gives me rest and comfort day by day.
Let me not fail to follow thy bright ray.
Let me not harbor bitterness or hate.
Let me not be, with triumph, o'er elate.
Grant me the boon for which I humbly pray.

Teach me, O God, to love my fellow man.
Wisdom, give me, to know the right from wrong.
Help me to recognize Thy will divine;
My life to live upon the perfect plan;
When those who need me fail, may I be strong,
Aiding and loving them, for they are Thine.
