303 (L.M.) Thomas Kelly

Poor and afflicted, Lord, are Thine;

Among the great unfit to shine;

But though the world may think it strange,

They would not with the world exchange.

Poor and afflicted, yet they trust

In God, the gracious, wise, and just;

For them He deigns this lot to choose,

Nor would they dare His will refuse.

Poor and afflicted, oft they are

Sorely oppressed with want and care;

Yet He who saves them by His blood,

Makes every sorrow yield them good.

Poor and afflicted — yet they sing,

For Christ, their glorious, conq'ring King,

Through suff'rings perfect, reigns on high,

And does their every need supply.

Poor and afflicted — yet ere long,

They'll join the bright celestial throng,

And all their suff'rings then shall close,

And heav'n afford them sweet repose.

Poor and afflicted, filled with grief —

O Lord, afford us kind relief

To cheer the heart that heaves a sigh,

And wipe the tears from ev'ry eye.
