NSB: Doris Ware

DORIS WARE

I would not ask a golden crown
Could I the Heavenly Presence gain,
But just the touch of His cool hand
To take away the earthly stain
Of every glaring fault of mine.
It were enough
From these things to be shriven
And in His holy Presence stand
With all my sins forgiven!
