A Prayer [Thou Who Mad’st The Mighty Clock]
by [?]

Thou who mad’st the mighty clock
Of the great world go;
Mad’st its pendulum swing and rock,
Ceaseless to and fro;
Thou whose will doth push and draw
Every orb in heaven,
Help me move by higher law
In my spirit graven.

Like a planet let me swing–
With intention strong;
In my orbit rushing sing
Jubilant along;
Help me answer in my course
To my seasons due;
Lord of every stayless force,
Make my Willing true.
