A Prayer for A LIFE to Live

        A Prayer for A LIFE to Live

I dedicate myself to thee,
0 Lord, my God, this work I undertake
Alone in thy great name, and for thy sake.
In ministering to suffering I would learn
The sympathy that in thy heart did burn.
Take, then, mine eyes, and teach them to perceive
The ablest way each sick one to relieve.
Guide my hands, that e'en their touch may prove
The gentleness and aptness born of love.
Bless my feet, so while they softly tread
May my face smile on many a sufferer's bed.
Touch my lips, and guide my tongue with words of love,
Guide me a work a sermon for each and every one.
Clothe me with patience, and strength for all tasks to bear,
Cover me with hope and love, which will know no fear,
strengthen my faith, as I come face to face with death
Guide me to inspire them with joy upon there dying ways,.
All through the arduous day my actions guide,
All through the lonely night, watch by my side,
So I shall wake refreshed, with strength to pray,
Work in me, through me, with me, Lord, 
This and everyday.
