    But maybe prayer is a road to rise,
    A mountain path leading toward the skies
    To assist the spirit who truly tries.
    But it isn't a shibboleth, creed, nor code,
    It isn't a pack-horse to carry your load,
    It isn't a wagon, it's only a road.
    And perhaps the reward of the spirit who tries
    Is not the goal, but the exercise!

Thy secret prayers can hear;
When a dead wall read more

Doubt not but God who sits on high,
Thy secret prayers can hear;
When a dead wall thus cunningly
Conveys soft whispers to the ear.
