Lyrics: Robert Elliot

Should your table with plenty be crowned,
And poverty sue at your door,
Let your bounty reply to the sound;
O remember the wants of the poor.

Should the blessing of health be your share,
And disease your assistance implore,
Let compassion the cordial prepare;
O remember the wants of the poor.

Should religion, exalting your views,
Incite you her truths to explore,
Let knowledge her treasures diffuse;
O remember the wants of the poor.

Thus completing your labours of love,
When your spirit to heaven shall soar,
The blest shall receive you above
For rememb'ring the souls of the poor.
