Lord, Thou who readest all hearts, how reticent we are to add words.
Thou hast spoken, and Thou hast spoken more than we can carry out in a lifetime.
And so our need is very real,--great, --a matter now of capacity, God given;
to receive, to be able to receive.
O Lord, help us at this time in this very real need,
to speak, to hear, to further profit.
Around us there is help, O Lord, around us Thy help at this time.
For Thy Name's Sake, Amen.
