Christ’s Friends
By Mary Elizabeth Coleridge (1861–1907)
 
BEFORE Thine Altar on my bended knees
When I remember those Thy friends that lie
Helpless and hopeless, sunk in misery,
O Christ, I love Thee, but I love not these.
 
Without them I may never hope to please        5
That friend of theirs who had no word to say
When from his side the rich man turned away.
O Christ, Thou lov’st not me. Thou lovest these.
