“Prayer,” Ensign, Jan. 1976, 13


    If man were made of concrete and steel

    He would be solid

    And strong;

    But he would also be unbendable,

    Unable to kneel,

    Not as slave, but as humble supplicator

    To a Higher Power

    Who knows that man’s strength

    Is not to be measured as concrete and steel—

    In tensil units—

    But in his indomitable will.
