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
