A Surgeon’s Prayer

A Surgeon’s Prayer

These strong gloved fingers

Which I flex –

This human hand

Which holds the knife,

Sterile now and steady –

Need thy guiding skill

To help another life.

Bless now this patient –

Thine and mine –

Who, under Thee, entrusts to me

A precious life!

God of the surgeon’s tireless strength,

The surgeon’s finite skill,

Grant that I may be guided

To do Thy will.
