THE weak must long for greater strength, or be 

Forever weak. The only strong are they

Who long for greater strength unceasingly; 

But whosoever he that will not pray,

Lest he may be accounted weak ah, he

Shall weaker grow until he cannot see

How far from strength his soul has made its way.

Oh! Let us tremble, lest our Weakness grow

So great we cannot see it; or, if so,

Behold it as 't were strength; let us each day,

With all our hearts, desire to be made strong;

God never lets the yearning heart wait long; 

Indeed, to him that trusts there's no delay, 

But ready strength for every step the way.
