26. Come your Ways in


Come your ways in,

Stranger no stranger,

Gently, so gently.

Here is no sin,

Here is no danger;

Here is a mother bending intently

Over a manger.


Come your ways in,

Come the thatch under,

Softly, oh softly.

Here doth begin

Love’s breathless wonder;

Here is a maiden nursing so deftly

God of the thunder.
