We Pray, O Lord, for Blessing
HYMN 18
From HYMNS FOR CREATURES GREAT & SMALL

  1. We pray, O Lord, for blessing
    On all remembered here,
    The beasts of farm and woodland,
    And pets whom we hold dear;
    For hunted fox and badger,
    For otter, pheasant, hare,
    Ill treated horse and donkey
    Who have no proper care.
     
  2. O stir our conscience strongly
    To stop experiment
    On dogs and cats and rabbits,
    For those on beauty bent;
    O spare these lives so harmless
    Who die for human gain,
    And give them peace from suffering,
    Release them from their pain.
     
  3. We pray for all the seal pups
    So cruelly clubbed to death
    While gazing at their killers
    With trust, to their last breath;
    O make men feel compassion
    For all created life,
    So we and your creation
    Shall be no more at strife.

Written by H. Joan Chaplin
Could be sung to "Aurelia" (7.6.7.6.D.)
