A Child's Prayer by M. Betham Edwards









A Child's Prayer
M. Betham Edwards


God make my life a little light,
Within the world to glow—
A tiny flame that burneth bright,
Wherever I may go.

God make my life a little flower, 
That bringeth joy to all,
Content to bloom in native bower,
Although its place be small.

God make my life a little song,
That comforteth the sad, 
That helpeth others to be strong,
And makes the singer glad.
