    A prayer for a toothache.
    St. Peter sat on a marble stone,
    Christ came to him when he was alone,
    He said "St Peter why do you wake"?
    Oh! my Lord it is a toothache,
    Whoever says this prayer thrice by night and thrice by day for my sake,
    Will never be troubled with a toothache.
