The man who with a heart of love
Doeth an action good and kind
For mercy's sake, expecting nought,
Great recompense will find.
"For he who doeth good to one
Of these my brethren counted least
To me the deed hath also done"—
Thus spake our great High Priest.
Were only deeds of love performed,
Their mingled essences would make
An unguent, and efface the scars
Borne meekly for our sake.
