A Prayer for August
Guide me, O Thou great Jehovah,
Pilgrim through this barren land;
I am weak, but Thou are mighty,
Hold me with Thy powerful hand:
Bread of heaven,
Feed me till I want no more.
Open now the crystal fountain,
Whence the healing stream cloth flow;
Let the fire and cloudy pillar
Lead me all my journey through;
Be Thou still my strength and shield.
-William Williams (1717-1791)
