A Prayer

by Edgar Albert Guest

Edgar Albert Guest

If I am to suffer pain,
Let me bear it as a man.
If I'm not the hights to gain
Let me do the best I can.
Let me travel on my way
Glad of heart and with a smile,
Finding something every day
That is really worth the while.
If I am to reach my goal
Let me not grow proud and vain,
Without arrogance of soul
Let me victories attain.
Let me travel on my way
Winning whatsoe'er I can
But remembering every day
What I owe my fellow man.
