On Psalm 138:6'A Prayer
Lord Take away 'the pride of life' from me,
That I might walk in true humility
But to receive, and glimpse your Love and Glory
For it is high and greatly to be prized
Not shunned or scorned by such as walk unwise.
One touch from Thee makes life and breath more sweet
Than gaudy treasures bartered in the street.
And touch your Virtue, not the praise of men.
(G. Pinkney, 8/26/06). . .
