The Good Samaritan

By Adelbert Clark

The good Samaritan is he, my friend,
Who reaches down to lift men up,
Who heals their sorrows and their bleeding wounds
From Love’s divine and brimming cup.
He does not seek to chide nor even vex
The fallen ones in bitter need
Of help, but raises them with gentle arm,
Nor seeks no favor for the deed.
