Paul Laurence Dunbar

Cypress publishing CP1572


soundcloud audio:

from the publisher…”Serene choral music, full of prayerful pleading – to the lyrics of Paul Laurence Dunbar,  (b. 1872), who gave the world beautiful and meaningful poetry”


O Lord, the hard-won miles have

worn my stumbling feet

O soothe me with Thy smiles,

and make my life complete.

O Lord, the thorns were thick and keen

Where’re I trembling trod

The way was long between

my wounded feet and God.

O Lord, where healing waters flow

do Thou my footsteps lead

My heart is aching, aching so

Thy gracious balm I need – O Lord
