The rich man in his castle,
The poor man at his gate,
God made them, high or lowly,
And order'd their estate.
He gave us eyes to see them,
And lips that we might tell,
How great is God Almighty,
Who has made all things well.
All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
...
God hath his mysteries of grace,
Ways that we cannot tell,
...
That was the grandest funeral
That ever passed on earth;
Yet no man heard the trampling,
Noiselessly as the daylight
Comes when the night is done,
Noiselessly as the spring-time
Her crown of verdure weaves,
This was the bravest warrior
That ever buckled sword;
This the most gifted poet
That ever breathed a word;
There is a green hill far away,
Without a city wall,
Where the dear Lord was crucified,
Who died to save us all.
There was no other good enough
To pay the price of sin;
He only could unlock the gate
Of heaven and let us in.
