A Modern Version
(U. S. A., 1905)
By Arthur Guiterman
(Contemporary American poet)
|THOU, Whom rich and poor adore,|
|Grant me fifty millions more,|
|Earned or pilfered, foul or pure;|
|From mans law hold me secure.|
|So, when I have gained of gold|| 5|
|All my coffers well can hold,|
|I may give, O Lord, for Thee,|
|One-sixteenth in Charity.|
