A Prayer for Love

Help me, Lord, to be like Your love,
not knowing any hour or time.
Help me, Lord, to be like Your love,
that gives and expects nothing in return.
Help me, Lord, to be like Your love,
that just loves to give and give.
Help me, Lord, to be like Your love,
that is meek and kind and sincere.
Help me, Lord, to be like Your love,
for faults are lost in Your love's sea.
Help me, Lord, to be like Your love,
to laugh with those who laugh,
and to weep with those who weep.
Help me, Lord, to be like Your love,
never-ending and never too busy to stop.
Help me, Lord, to be like Your love,
to give my life that others may live.
—Maria Fontaine
