My Prayer Take Wings
Take wings, thou my prayer, take wings© 2015 Walterrean Salley
And get thee up to God most high.
Hurry now my trusty prayer;
Up and off. Climb—soar—fly.
Thro' all the spheres and galaxies
Midst obstacles, your way to fight.
Veer not left or to the right;
Let nothing hinder, then, your flight.
Above the clouds and skies of blue
Go, bear the cargo that I send.
Ever, then, so cautiously,
Proceed ‘cording to heaven's trend.
Till thou return, I shall not rest;
And, so, I wait with bated breath.
