An Old English Prayer

Allow Us Oh Lord:

To have the time to work which is the price of success.

To have the time to think which is the fountain of power.

To have the time to plan which is the secret of perpetual youth.

To have the time to read which is the fountain of eternal wisdom.

To have the time for friendship which is the road to happiness.

To have the time to dream which is to drive our carriage to the star.

To have the time to love and to be loved which is a privilege of the gods.

To have the time to look around us the day is too short to be self-centered.

To have the time to laugh which is the music of the soul.
