Madison Choral Project; Albert Pinsonneault, Conductor

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.

Paul Laurence Dunbar (1872–1906)
