GIVE THE STRANGER HAPPY CHEER
2 Give the stranger happy cheer,
1 While forms familiar 'round ye stand,
Ye may not know what weight of woe
The wanderer bears in an unknown
land,
Around ye no blessings more sweetly
may fall Than those which the way-wearied ex­ile may call.
3 Give the stranger happy cheer.
Where'er ye find him, wan and weak, 'Twere little cost, 'twere nothing lost To call a smile o'er his care-worn cheek. Your kindness for years in his memory
may rest To gladden his footsteps and comfort bis breast.
