Something to Think About…. Martha Hands – Mary Heart

“I must have the hands of Martha,

Hands that scrub and cook and sew-

I can have the heart of Mary

While I do these things, you know.

Though my hands are in the dishpan,

This soul of mine can soar

And in thoughts sublime and lofty

Go right up to heaven’s door.

I must cook, oh endless dinners,

For my dear ones have to eat;

But my soul need not be cooking-

It can sit at Jesus’ feet!

Help me God, while doing duties

Against which my soul rebels,

But meekly still to peel potatoes,

But not grovel in the shells.

Grant me, God, mid things prosaic

Ere to choose the better part;

Grant that while I must be Martha,

I may have the Mary heart.”
