Just One Request
Dear Master for this coming year
Just one request I bring:
I do not pray for happiness, Or any earthly thing—
I do not ask to understand The way Thou leadest me,
But this I ask: Teach me to do The thing that pleaseth Thee.
I want to know Thy guiding voice, To walk with Thee each day.
Dear Master make me swift to hear And ready to obey.
And thus the year I now begin A happy year will be—
If I am seeking just to do The thing that pleaseth Thee. --Unknown Author
