oh ruthie...

Test me, O Lord, and give me strength
to meet each test
unflinching, unafraid:
not striving nervously to do my best,
not self-assured, or careless as in
but with Your aid.

Purge me, Lord, and give me grace to
bear the heat
of cleasing flame:
not bitter at my lowly lot, but mete
to bear my share of suffering and keep
in Jesus' Name.

-Ruth Bell Graham
