A Young Person's Prayer

Call me Lord, call my name,
and I will follow you.

Call me in the morning
when the day is new;
Call me when it's evening
and all my whole life through.

Voices from everywhere
call to me, O Lord;
But you alone know my name,
I belong to you.

Call me when it's dark, Lord,
when I hardly hear;
Speak to me within my heart,
tell me you are near.

By your call lead me on
to all that I can do;
Always call my name, O Lord,
and I will follow you.

--Victor Hoagland, C. P.
