Mary at Jesus’ Feet
Richard Crashaw (G.) (c. 1613–1649)
‘Mary which also sat at Jesus’ feet, and heard His word.’—LUKE X. 39.

BEHOLD a new thing here—host hanging on her Guest:
Preparing for His mouth, His mouth’s words are her feast!
O Martha sister, spare thy labour and thy cost:
Tending the food that perisheth, diviner food is lost.
