Petition
(For a Missionary’s Welfare)

By Mary Carol Goddard

Time, treat him kindly,
Him who labors there
With buoyant hope that
Crushes each despair;
Who goes the silent way
With ears and heart
Tuned to the needs of men.
And does his part
To ease the load of doubt
That weighs them down.
Time, when he leaves
The hearts new-filled with joy,
Help them acquire the wisdom
That death will not destroy.

(1940)
