INASMUCH

I was hungry and you gave me some food,
I was thirsty and you gave me to drink,
I was a stranger and you took me in,
I was naked, you clothed me, you didn't shrink,
I was sick and you paid me a visit,
I was in prison and you came unto me.

Inasmuch as you did it unto my brethren -
You did it unto me.

'And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left'

Matthew 25:33
