In stillness
   of prayer
There’s a fire
   within
Lighting the way
Over discord and
   sin
Its oil of pure
   gladness
Rejoices the heart
On heaven-bound
   journey
Where grace has its start 
There lessons
   await
Love’s claiming
   its own
In nearness and
   dearness
Its children are known
As chaff from
   the wheat
Love does refine
Calling all in
   its kingdom
Thou art mine
Thou art mine

—G. Gershala Goldsmith
