THE KING, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: How plain soe'er the house or poor the guests
Last Line: No longer poor the place where god takes part.
Subject(s): Religion; Theology


How plain soe'er the house or poor the guests,
The royalest of all sits at thy board,
Shares thy small space, waits longingly to give
Full measure of the comfort of His love.
How great thy dignity! How little need
That men should power or place or goods bestow!

Oh, give Him access to thy pent-up heart;
No longer poor the place where God takes part.
