By Arthur Guiterman

(Contemporary American poet)
THOU, Whom rich and poor adore,
Grant me fifty millions more,
Earned or pilfered, foul or pure;
From man’s 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.
