    Lord Jesus, Thou hast known

    A mother’s love and tender care:

    And Thou wilt hear, while for my own

    Mother most dear I make this birthday prayer.

    Protect her life, I pray,

    Who gave the gift of life to me;

    And may she know, from day to day,

    The deepening glow of Life that comes from Thee.

    As once upon her breast

    Fearless and well content I lay,

    So let her heart, on Thee at rest,

    Feel fears depart and troubles fade away.

    Her every wish fulfill;

    And even if Thou must refuse

    In anything, let Thy wise will

    A comfort bring such as kind mothers use.

    Ah, hold her by the hand,

    As once her hand held mine;

    And though she may not understand

    Life’s winding way, lead her in peace divine.

    I cannot pay my debt

    For all the love that she has given;

    But Thou, love’s Lord, wilt not forget

    Her due reward,–bless her in earth and heaven.

    Doors of Daring :)

    The mountains that enfold the vale

    With walls of granite, steep and high,

    Invite the fearless foot to scale

    Their stairway toward the sky.

    The restless, deep, dividing sea

    That flows and foams from shore to shore,

    Calls to its sunburned chivalry,

    "Push out, set sail, explore!"

    And all the bars at which we fret,

    That seem to prison and control,

    Are but the doors of daring, set

    Ajar before the soul.

    Say not, "Too poor," but freely give;

    Sigh not, "Too weak," but boldly try,

    You never can begin to live

    Until you dare to die.
