The Women Who Ministered unto Him

George MacDonald (1824–1905)

ENOUGH he labours for his hire;

Yea, nought can pay his pain;

But powers that wear and waste and tire,

Need strength to toil again.

They give him freely all they can;

They give him clothes and food;

In this rejoicing, that the man

Is not ashamed they should.

High loves take form in lowly thing;

He knows the offering such;

To them ’tis little that they bring,

To him ’tis very much.
