Heard (Henderson), Josephine D.
|A HAPPY HEART.|
GIVE me a Happy Heart and suasive tongue,
That I may cheer the aged and the young;
That I may charm the little child,
And make the winds of age seem mild.
Give me the willing hand and ready feet,
To raise the brother lying in the street;
Give me the honest heart that has no fear,
That with the humble I may shed a tear.
Give me the eye of faith that I may see
Some good accomplished daily Lord for Thee --
Give me a heart full of Thy holy zeal,
That I my neighbors joy or woe may feel.
Give me the feet that eagerly will run,
About the Master's work, until the sun
Has faced in its glory in the west,
And all the busy world has sought its rest.
