Prayer — Oral or Secret

By Rob Morris

There is a prayer unsaid
No lips its accents move
'Tis uttered by the pleading eye
And registered above.

Each Mystic Sign is prayer,
By hand of Mason given
Each gesture pleads or imprecates,
And is observed in Heaven.

The deeds that mercy prompts,
Are prayers in sweet disguise
Though unobserved by any here,
They're witnessed in the skies.

Then at the altar kneel
In silence make thy prayer
And He whose very name is Love
The plea will surely hear.

The darkest road is light
We shun the dangerous snare,
When heavenly hand conducts the road
Responsive to our prayer.
