Father, teach me how to still

The clamoring of sense, and fill

My place as listener,

That I may hear Thy voice and grow

To understand Thy Word, and so

Become Thy messenger.

Then teach me how to banish pride

And stubborn will that I may be

Thy representative –

With no false sense of human zeal,

That every word may bless and heal,

When I Thy message give.  Mary Baker Eddy     (Grekel, Doris, The Forever Leader, p.222)
