Lyrics: Ednah D. Cheney.
Tune: “Mornington.”


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, unfalt’ring feet and win
The heav’n’s serene abode.

And then I asked for Faith:
Could I but trust my God,
I’d live enfolded 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 op’ning ev’rywhere!
God only waited for me till
I prayed the larger prayer.
