■ A NEW VERSION
Oh, Lord, I come to thee to
prayer once more;
Bat pardon if I do not Kneel
before
Thy gracious presence, for my
knees are sore
With so much walking, In my
chair instead
III sit at ease and humbly bow
my head.
I’ve labored in Thy vineyard,
Thou do'at know;
I’ve Mold ten tickets to the min
strel show;
I’ve called on fifteen strangers
in our town,
Their contributions to our church
put down;
I’ve baked a pot of beans for
Saturday’s spree,
An old time supper it’s going to
be;
I’ve dressed three dolls, too,
for our annual fair,
And made a cake which we must
raffle there.
Now. with Thy boundk-saafris
dom, so sublime,
Thou knowest that these duties
nil take time;
I have no time to fight my
spirit’s foes,
I have no time to mend my hus
band's clothes;
My children roam the street
from morn ’til night,
I have no time to teach them to
do right;
But Thou, O Lord, considering
all my cares,
Will count them righteous, also
heed my prayers.
Bless the bean supper and the
minstrel show,
And put it in the hearts of all
to go.
Induce the visitors to patronise
The men who in our program ad
vertise,
Because I’ve chased these mer
chants ’til they hid,
Whene’er they saw me coming;
yes they did.
Increase the contributions to
our fair,
And bltss the people who are as
ssmbled there;
Bless Thou the grab-bag and
the gypsy tent,
The flower table and the cake
that's sent;
May our bridge club be to
Thy service blest,
And when Thou hast bestowed ,
these blessings, then
We pray that Thou wilt bless j
our souls. . . . Amen.
