Every shuiler is Christ

Language: English

Every shuiler is Christ
Then be not hard or cold : 
The bit that goes for Christ 
Will come a hundred-fold. 

The ear upon your corn 
Will burst before its time ; 
Your roots will yield a crop 
Without manure or lime. 

And every sup you give 
To crutch him on his way 
Will fill your churn with milk, 
And choke your barn with hay. 

Then when the shuiler begs, 
Be neither hard nor cold : 
The share that goes for Christ 
Will come a hundred-fold.
