 i

There was a man and a woman
Who sinned.
Then did the man heap the punishment All upon the head of her, And went away gaily.
ii There was a man and a woman Who sinned.
And the man stood with her.
As upon her head, so upon his, Fell blow and blow, And all people screaming, "Fool!" He was a brave heart.
iii He was a brave heart.
Would you speak with him, friend? Well, he is dead, And there went your opportunity.
Let it be your grief That he is dead And your opportunity gone; For, in that, you were a coward.
