Evening Prayer

At this evening hour in my youth

I knelt in college chapel

Silent prayer

Forty students

Dressed in black

Rosary by their sides

Redemptorists in the making

Silent enterprise


Prayer was so important

Morning noon and night

Silent meditation with the Lord

I am grateful for the habit

I learn its lesson still

The company of Christ

And know his will


To be in someone’s presence

To listen and be still

To seek and ask and knock

To understand God’s will

To feel your spirit strengthening

A settling in the soul

To be supported not alone

Achieves life’s every goal
