A Prayer (Dunbar)

For works with similar titles, see A 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.
