Prayer


Give me strength to carry on
If I have lost my own way
Every load shall be gone
When love will lift my new day
So much still needs here mending
In feelings strength and its play
To the heart purpose sending
And make its cause justice say

Give me strength to give and try
Feelings that makes us free
Reach the mountains and the sky
For each step to liberty
Let me help sister, brother
From stress with diversity
Earth is home and our mother
Make it whole in certainty

Give me strength in name of peace
With its hope and efforts true
So we in prospect increase
Like new morning coming through
Each day doubt not each other
Strength together defending
Let me help sister, brother
In try and hope ascending

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

I speak not, I trace not, I breathe not thy name;
There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
