I do not like to hear him pray On bend«d knee about an hour For grac? ::• spend a.ight each day. Who knows hii neighbor lias no flour. I'd rather seo him go to mill And buy his luckless ne.g..tor bread, And :-ee his child.en cat tneir fill, And laugh beneath their humble shed. I do not like to hear him pray "Let blessings-on the wichw be," Who never seeks her home to say "If want o'ertakes you, come to me."

I do not like, r-uch soulless prayers— If wrong, I hope to be forgiven; No angel-wing them upward bears: They're lost a million miles from Heaven.
