Pray For Me, Too

"Yet saints their watch are keeping,
"Their cry goes up, 'How long'"?

---Samuel J Stone, "The Church's One Foundation"


Too many unpaid bills;

too many health-threatening ills;

and always something in the house to go wrong:

problems come in like a bumper crop;

another shoe always waiting to drop.

In this ever compounding need,

I can only plead

(with saints gone on, ahead) "Oh, Lord, how long?"
