Lyrics:

Refrain: Whatsoever you do to the least of my people;
That you do unto me.

1. When I was hungry, you gave me to eat;
When I was thirsty, you gave me to drink.
Now enter into the home of My Father. Refrain

2. When I was homeless, you opened your door;
When I was naked, you gave me your coat.
Now enter into the home of My Father. Refrain

3. When I was weary, you helped me find rest.
When I was anxious, you calmed all my fears.
Now enter into the home of My Father. Refrain

4. When in a prison, you came to my cell;
When on a sickbed, you cared for my needs.
Now enter into the home of My Father. Refrain

5. When I was laughed at, you stood by my side;
When I was happy, you shared in my joy.
Now enter into the home of My Father. Refrain
