He Was Weak, and I Was Strong’€”then

He was weak, and I was strong’—then’—
So He let me lead him in’—
I was weak, and He was strong then’—
So I let him lead me’—Home.
’Twasn’t far’—the door was near’—
’Twasn’t dark’—for He went’—too’—
’Twasn’t loud, for He said nought’—
That was all I cared to know.
Day knocked’—and we must part’—
Neither’—was strongest’—now’—
He strove’—and I strove’—too’—
We didn’t do it’—tho’!
