A Quote by Elias Penn-Smith on god, heart, pain, strength, and truth

Dear God, let me know within my heart When I am right; Let it be the balm to soothe my deepest pain; Let me know the truth and speak it, When to hold would bring me gain; Dear God, let me truly know myself And have the inside strength To stand alone.

Elias Penn-Smith
