I HAVE PRAYED, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: That thou mightst happy be, I once did pray
Last Line: My steps near thee can ne'er be straying.
Subject(s): Prayer


THAT thou mightst happy be, I once did pray;
But now thou'rt joy possessing,
Meseems, amid the pangs which my heart slay,
A thousand times from it the wish must stray,
That grief again was thee oppressing.

'T is only when thou 'rt wretched that thou 'rt mine,
Once more then I am praying.
Now, when Love's golden sun doth on thee shine,
And solitude on earth's no longer thine,
My steps near thee can ne'er be straying.
