Hymn/Song Information

Turn not from him who asks of thee A




Turn not from him who asks of thee
A portion of thy store;
Thou poor in worldly goods may’st be,
Yet canst give what is more.


The balm of comfort thou canst pour
Into his grieving mind,
Who oft is turned from wealth’s proud door,
With many a word unkind.


Does any from the false world find
Naught but reproach and scorn?
Does any, stung by words unkind,
Wish that he ne’er was born?


Do thou raise up his drooping heart,
Restore his wounded mind;
Though naught of wealth thou canst impart,
Yet till thou may’st be kind.


And oft again thy words shall wing
Backward their course to thee,
And in thy breast will prove a spring
Of pure felicity.
