Desires
By Elizabeth Clementine Kinney (1810–1889)
 
[From Poems. 1867.]

MORE faith, dear Lord, more faith!
  Take all these doubts away;
Oh! let the simple words “He saith”
  Confirm my faith each day.
 
More hope, dear Lord, more hope!        5
  To conquer timid fear—
To cheer life’s path, as on I grope,
  Till Heaven’s own light appear.
 
More love, dear Lord, more love!
  Such as on earth was Thine—        10
All graces and all gifts above,
  Unselfish love be mine.
