Newman as a young manA Prayer from John Henry Newman (1801-1890) All I need thee to teach me day by day, According to each day’s opportunities and needs. Give me, O my Lord, that purity of conscience Which alone can receive they inspirations. My ears are dull, So that I cannot hear thy voice. My eyes are dim, So that I cannot see thy tokens. Thou alone canst quicken my hearing, And purge my sight, And cleanse and renew my heart. Teach me to sit at thy feet, And to hear thy word. Amen
