    The Old Man at the Cottage Door

    Come, faint old man! and sit awhile
    Beside our cottage door;
    A cup of water from the spring,
    A loaf to bless the poor,
    We give with cheerful hearts, for God
    Hath given us of his store.

    Too feeble, thou, for daily toil,
    Too weak to earn thy bread--
    For th' weight of many, many years,
    Lies heavy on thy head--
    A wanderer, want, thy weary feet,
    Hath to our cottage led.

    Come rest awhile. 'Twill not be long,
    Ere thy faint head shall know
    A deeper, calmer, better rest,
    Than cometh here below;
    When He, who loveth every one,
    Shall call thee hence to go.

    God bless thee in thy wanderings!
    Wherever they may be,
    And make the ears of every one
    Attentive to thy plea;
    A double blessing will be theirs,
    Who kindly turn to thee.
