Prayer for Patience

Dear patience, hold my wetted tongue,
And rouse my restless soul to speak;

Let not the vipers in my veins
Betray the sound of my heart’s beat;

Let not this captive loneliness
Ensnare the light that dwells within;

Cast off the serpents of the night,
And let the hope of heaven in.
