    Live the Way You Pray


    I knelt to pray when day was done,
    And prayed: "O Lord, bless everyone;
    Lift from each saddened heart the pain,
    And let the sick be well again."


    And then I woke another day
    And carelessly went on my way,
    The whole day long I did not try
    To wipe a tear from any eye.
    I did not try to share the load
    Of any brother on the road.
    I did not even go to see
    The sick man just next door to me.


    Yet once again when day was done
    I prayed, "O Lord, bless everyone."

    But as I prayed, into my ear
    There came a voice that whispered clear,
    "Pause, my child, before you pray.
    Whom have you tried to bless today?
    God's sweetest blessing always go
    By hands that serve him here below."


    And then I hid my face and cried,
    "Forgive me, God, I have not tried,
    But let me live another day
    And I will live the way I pray."
