Little Springtime Prayer

By Helen Rice

God, grant this little springtime prayer
And make our hearts, grown cold with care,
Once more aware of the waking earth
Now pregnant with life and bursting with birth…
For how can man feel any fear or doubt 
When on every side all around and about
The March winds blow across a man’s face
And whisper of God’s power and grace?
Oh, give us faith to believe again
That peace on earth, good will to men
Will follow this winter of man’s mind
And awaken his heart and make him kind…
And just as great nature sends spring
To give new birth to each sleeping thing,
God, grant rebirth to man’s slumbering soul
And help him forsake his selfish goal.

Spring time 2
