Poems of Sentiment: VI. Labor and Rest
Song: “He that is down need fear no fall”
John Bunyan (1628–1688)
HE that is down need fear no fall;
  He that is low, no pride;
He that is humble ever shall
  Have God to be his guide.
I am content with what I have,        5
  Little be it or much;
And, Lord, contentment still I crave,
  Because thou savest such.
Fulness to such a burden is
  That go on pilgrimage;        10
Here little, and hereafter bliss,
  Is best from age to age.
