One Prayer - Poem by Mary Legacy

God, grant us one prayer
--- the joy of knowing love,
the union of it,
a son or daughter
we two shall covet,
and, in spite of faddish sneer,
guide us with love
through every year
in a happy, unbroken home
with old fashioned atmosphere.
Don't let the unchecked
Brutality of Man
destroy your Unity of Plan.
