Goodnight's Prayer


Guard the pane of my heart
Let not foes steal the peace;
Paint my dream a solemn art
All I ask of you is this
Make me ride on chariot dream
Love for others, in me, grow;
And when I wake in morning's gleam
Give me strength, my boat, to row

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
