Why, therefore, should we do ourselves this wrong,
Or others -- that we are not always strong;
That we are ever overborne with care;
That we should ever weak or heartless be,
Anxious or troubled, when with us is prayer,
And joy, and strength, and courage, are with Thee?
-- Richard Chenevix Trench
(Note: I discovered in the back of an old book I inherited from my father's library: How to Pray by Reuben Archer Torrey (1916). The poem had been handwritten by the previous owner, Belle McMillan, a mighty prayer warrior and holy woman.)
