In hardship are the humble born,
beat down, sore worn.
And setting sail, they seek new land ~
to hide from the master's hand.

"My God!" they pray,
"We die this day!
Our children perish!
We swallow dismay!"

So mercy sees,
and sorrow flees
the chains of honest tradery.
And mercy flies
toward hollowed eyes
and fainting hearts
to comfort a mother who cries.

Great engines sore.
Great doctors heal,
and far too late
for fantasies real.

The humble are born
in ships of steal.
And stolen bread
becomes love's meal.
