First Line: My answered prayer came up to me

Alternate Author Name(s): Filsinger, Ernest B., Mrs.
Subject(s): Prayer


My answered prayer came up to me,
And in the silence thus spake he:
"O you who prayed for me to come,
Your greeting is but cold and dumb."

My heart made answer: "You are fair,
But I have prayed too long to care.
Why came you not when all was new,
And I had died for joy of you."
