973. 7s. M. Bowring. |The rich and poor meet together.|
1 Come the rich and come the poor,
To the Christian temple door;
Let their mingled prayers ascend
To the universal Friend.
2 Here the rich and poor may claim
Common ancestry and name;
Claim a common heritage,
In the gospel's promise page.
3 Of the same materials wrought;
By the same instructor taught;
Walking in life's common way;
Tending to the same decay.
4 Rich and poor at last shall meet
At the heavenly mercy seat;
Where the name of rich and poor
Never shall be uttered more.
