The Shepherds Song



"He that is down need fear no fall,

He that is low no pride;

He that is humble ever shall

Have God to be his guide.



I am content with what I have,

Little be it or much;

And Lord, contentment still I crave,

Because Thou savest such.



Fullness to them a burden is,

That go on pilgrimage;

Here little, and hereafter bliss,

Is best from age to age!"
