Stranger in a land estranged

“Give thou me this stranger who from his youth has wandered like a stranger. Give thou me this stranger whom his kinsmen killed in hatred like a stranger. Give me this stranger at whom I wonder, beholding him as a guest of death. Give me this stranger who knoweth how to take in the poor and strangers. Give me this stranger whom the Jews in envy estranged from the world. Give thou me this stranger that I may bury him in a tomb, who being a stranger hath no place whereon to lay his head.”
