Peter lent a boat to save Him from the press;
Martha lent a home, with busy kindliness.
One man lent a colt, another lent a room;
Some threw down their clothes, and Joseph lent a tomb.
Simon lent his strength the cruel cross to bear;
Mary spices brought His body to prepare.
But nought have I to lend—no boat, no house, no lands.
Dwell, Lord, in my heart and use these feeble hands.
(1 Sam. 1. 28; Luke 5. 3; 10. 38; 19. 33, 34; 22. 11, 12; 23. 26; 24. 1)
