  A Prayer of Faith  

 

Master of sweet and loving lore,
     Give us the open mind
To know religion means no more,
     No less, than being kind.

Give us the comprehensive sight
     That sees another's need;
And let our aim to set things right
     Prove God inspired our creed.

Give us the soul to know our kin
     That dwell in flock and herd,
The voice to fight man's shameful sin
     Against the beast and bird.

Give us a heart with love so fraught
     For all created things,
That even our unspoken thought
     Bears healing on its wings.

Give us religion that will cope
     With life's colossal woes,
And turn a radiant face of hope
     On troops of pigmy foes.

Give us the mastery of our fate
     In thoughts so warm and white,
They stamp upon the brows of hate
     Love's glorious seal of light.

Give us the strong, courageous faith
     That makes of pain a friend,
And calls the secret word of death
     'Beginning,' and not 'end.'

       - Ella Wheeler Wilcox
