"Whatsoever He Sayeth Unto You, Do It"

Author: William Cullen Bryant  | Date: 1864

WHATSOEVER HE SAYETH UNTO YOU, DO IT

"Whate’er he bids, observe and do";

Such were the words that Mary said,

What time the Holy One and True

Sat where the marriage feast was spread.

Then, at his word, the servants sought

The streams from Cana’s fountains poured,

And lo! the crystal water brought

Was ruddy wine upon the board.

Whate’er he bids observe and do;

Such be the law that we obey,

And greater wonders men shall view

Than that of Cana’s bridal day.

The flinty heart with love shall beat,

The chains shall fall from passion’s slave,

The proud shall sit at Jesus’ feet

And learn the truths that bless and save.
