Let Me Today

Rays Of Wisdom - Prayers And Words Of Wisdom From Around Our World - Let Me Today

Let me today do something that shall take
A little sadness from our world’s vast store,
And may I be so favoured as to make
Of joy’s too scanty sum a little more.

Let me not hurt by any selfish deed
Or thoughtless word, the heart of foe or friend.
Nor would I pass, unseeing, worthy need,
Or sin by silence when I should defend.

However meagre be my worldly wealth,
Let me give something that aids humankind.
A word of courage or a thought of health,
Dropped as I pass, for troubled hearts to find.

Let me tonight look back across the span
‘Twixt dawn and dark, and to my conscience say:
‘Because of some good act to beast or man
The world is better that I lived today.’

Ella Wheeler Wilcox
