Prayer II

Thou art the ocean

I am but a droplet

Longing to be one

With you O Lord

 

Thou art the mother

I am but a child

Do not wean me

From you O lord

 

Thou art the shepherd

I am but a lamb

Kindly keep watch

Over me O Lord

 

Thou art the sun

I am but a sunflower

Dependent upon you

For my being O Lord

 

Thou art the gardener

I am but a wee bloom

Needing your tender

Loving care O Lord

 

Thou art the Milky Way

I am but a tiny star

Let thy light shine

Over me O Lord

 

Thou art the mighty oak

I am just an acorn

Aspiring to be one

With you O Lord

 

Thou art all in all

Omnipotent, omnipresent

Do not forget me and

Do not forsake me O Lord!

 

 

 

 

A grandfather was walking through his yard when he heard his granddaughter repeating the alphabet in a tone of voice that sounded like a prayer. He asked her what she was  doing. The little girl explained: “I’m praying, but I can’t think of exactly the right  words, so I’m just saying all the letters, and God will put them together for me,
because He knows what I’m thinking.”
Charles B. Vaughan
