    Doing the Stations of the Cross

    In a church, still and lonely,
    One poor old woman only
    Is wrapped in prayer,
    And pious meditation;
    Moving along from station
    To station there.

    Not a bright sight to look on,
    Or write a brilliant book on.
    Heaven sees; heaven hears.
    None but the pure and tender
    And true may comprehend her
    Sighs and her tears.

    Heaven knows how well she pleases
    The loving Heart of Jesus.
    This poor frail one –
    She weeps with Mary weeping;
    In step with Mary keeping;
    Near Mary’s Son.
