DISTRACTIONS IN PRAYER.
I need Thy mercy for my sin;
But more than this I need, Thy mercy's likeness in my soul
For others' sin to bleed.
'T is not enough to weep my sins;
'T is but one step to Heaven: When I am kind to others, then
I know myself forgiven.
Would that my soul might be a world
Of golden ether bright, A Heaven where other souls might float,
Like all Thy worlds, in light.
All bitterness is from ourselves,
All sweetness is from Thee; Sweet God ! for evermore be Thou
Fountain and fire in me!
DISTRACTIONS IN PRAYER.
Ah dearest Lord ! I cannot pray,
My fancy is not free ; Unmannerly distractions come,
And force my thoughts from Thee.
