It May Be God Is Pleased

Helen Waddell (1889-1965), Lyrics from the Chinese (Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1913), p. 6, no. VI:
        Written c. 1114 B.C.

We load the sacrificial stands
    Of wood and earthen ware,
The smell of burning southernwood
    Is heavy in the air.

It was our fathers' sacrifice,
    It may be they were eased.
We know no harm to come of it;
    It may be God is pleased.
