At first I prayed for light Could I but




At first I prayed for light:
Could I but see the way,
How gladly, swiftly would I walk
To everlasting day!


And next I prayed for strength:
That I might tread the road
With firm, unfaltering feet, and win
The heavens serene abode.


And then I prayed for faith:
Could I but trust my God,
Id live infolded in His peace,
Though foes were all abroad.


But now I pray for love:
Deep love to God and man;
A living love that will not fail,
However dark His plan.


And light and strength and faith
Are opening everywhere!
God waited patiently until
I prayed the larger prayer.
