"The Nurse's Prayer: May we be strong, and calm, and brave, / Mighty through Thee to heal and save. / There is so little we can do, / And often all seems done in vain; / Our hearts are sore and faith grows dim / in the dark mystery of pain. / Guide Thou our hands to soothe and bless, / And fill them with Thy tenderness. / In lonely watches of the night, / Go Thou with us from ward to ward, / A healing balm, a vision sweet, / Each restless one to calm and guard; / With Thee we can the burden bear, / If Thou our every vigil share."
