Prayer (Tennyson)

More things are wrought by prayer Than this world dreams of. Wherefore, let thy voice Rise like a fountain for me night and day. For what are men better than sheep or goats That nourish a blind life within the brain, If knowing God, they lift not hands of prayer Both for themselves and those who call them  friend? [Alfred, Lord Tennyson,  Idylls of the King, The Passing of Arthur,  lines 413­21]
