A PRAYER, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: O lord, the hard-won miles
Last Line: Thy gracious balm I need.
Subject(s): Prayer

O LORD, the hard-won miles
Have worn my stumbling feet:
Oh, soothe me with thy smiles,
And make my life complete.

The thorns were thick and keen
Where'er I trembling trod;
The way was long between
My wounded feet and God.

Where healing waters flow
Do thou my footsteps lead.
My heart is aching so;
Thy gracious balm I need.
