Pray don't find fault with the man
who limps or stumbles along the road
Unless you have worn the shoes he wears, or struggled beneath his load.
There may be tacks in his shoes that hurt, though hidden away from view, Or the burden he bears...placed on your back, might cause you to stumble too.
Don't sneer at the man who's down today, unless you have felt the blow That caused his fall or felt the shame that only the fallen know.
You may be strong, but still the blows that were his...if dealt to you, In the selfsame way at the selfsame time might cause you to stagger too.
Don't be too harsh with the man who sins or pelt him with word or stone Unless you are sure...yea doubly sure
that you have no sins of your own...
For you know...perhaps if the tempters
voice should whisper...
as softly to you
As it did to him...when he went astray
could cause you to falter too.
