8

He knew their hearts were foolish, eyes were dim, And therefore by his side needs must they stay.
He knew their hearts were foolish, eyes were dim, And therefore by his side needs must they stay.

Even when their foolish words they turned on him,He did not his disciples send away;
He knew their hearts were foolish, eyes were dim,
And therefore by his side needs must they stay.
Thou will not, Lord, send me away from thee.
When I am foolish, make thy cock crow grim;
If that is not enough, turn, Lord, and look on me.

— George MacDonald
