Pray don’t find fault with the man who limps Or stumbles along the road, Unless you have worn the shoes that hurt, 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 same That only the fallen know. You may be strong, but still the blows That were his, if dealt to you In the self-same way at the self-same time, Might cause you to stagger, too.
Don’t be too harsh with the man who sins Or pelt him with words or stones, Unless you are sure, yea, doubly sure, That you have no sins of your own. For you know perhaps, if the tempter's voice Should whisper as soft to you As it did to him when he went astray, ‘Twould cause you to falter, too.
