A Last Prayer

From the June 1886 issue of The Christian Science Journal

The Century


Father , I scarcely dare to pray, So clear I see, now it is done, That I have wasted half my day, And left my work but just begun; So clear I see that things I thought Were right or harmless were a sin; So clear I see that I have sought. Unconscious, selfish aims to win.
