Lines to Memorize.
Wouldst Thou receive this unworthy gift of mine?
Then let me lay it prostate at Thy blessed Feet
I came with an eager heart.
Though courage had I none to approach Thee.
But Thou, All-seeing, didst know my heart’s yearning
And didst call me to Thy side.
I am wonder-struck at this, Thy mercy!
When we learn the art of connecting ourselves with the Source of life, this little distracted fragment of life will become glorified and we shall find peace. Our little life will be blessed and we shall not again weep and mourn. We shall learn to practise the beautiful attributes of life – calmness, peace, steadfastness, faith. These are the adornments of life which beautify a man’s character.
Kindle in my heart the light of understanding, O Lord,
That I may learn to be a true instrument in Thy hand.
May I never do aught to hurt or hinder my brother in his search for Thee.
May I always serve truly and faithfully all Thy children.
Accept my offering of prayers and bestow on me Thy holy blessing.
