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;        5
  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;        10
To them ’tis little that they bring,
  To him ’tis very much.
