Lyrics

When saw we Thee a-hungered, Lord,
And ministered unto Thee?
Inasmuch as ye have done it
To the least of these,
Ye have done it unto Me.

Refrain

Blessèd lesson that we all may learn,
Blessèd plaudit that we all may earn.

When saw we Thee athirst, O Lord,
And ministered unto Thee?
Inasmuch as ye have done it
To the least of these,
Ye have done it unto Me.

Refrain

When saw we Thee a stranger, sick,
Or in prison, and came to Thee?
Inasmuch as ye have done it
To the least of these,
Ye have done it unto Me.
