First Line: Far-famed fair helen, stretching forth a hand
Last Line: To pardon even meagerness its debts.
Subject(s): Despair; Friendship; Keller, Helen (1880-1968); Prayer


Far-famed fair Helen stretching forth a hand,
Ever to those who suffer in distress,
Feeling the weight of all this sad world's woe
Its imprint on your nature fine impress;
Let one whose sole desire it is to be
More like you with each weary, passing day,
Extend an upstretched hand from out the depths
Of dull despair with perfect certainty
That here, at least, true friendship ready stands
To pardon even meagerness its debts.
