"Prayer" is the first song of H. Leslie Adams' song cycle Nightsongs: Six Afro-American Songs.

by Langston Hughes

I ask you this:
Which way to go?
I ask you this:
Which sin to bear?
Which crown to put
Upon my hair?
I do not know,
Lord God,
I do not know.

--The Collected Poems of Langston Hughes, p. 51
