Prayer Regarding Children

“Dear Lord, I do not ask,

that Thou shouldst give me some high work of Thine,

some noble calling or some wondering task.

Give me a little hand to hold in mine.

Give me a little child to point the way,

over the strange sweet path that leads to Thee.

Give me a little voice to teach to pray,

Give me two shining eyes Thy face to see.

The only crown I ask, Dear Lord ~ to wear is this,

that I may teach a little child.

I do not ask that I may ever stand

among the wise, the worthy, or the great.

I only ask that softly hand-in-hand,

a child and I may enter at the gate.”
