Poem By Beatrice Christopher

March 8, 1995

Poem written by Beatrice Christopher:

___

I know I am only a servant girl

And I’m not ashamed to say

I belong to the ranks of those that toil

For a living day by day.

I belong to the lower class,

That’s the phrase we often meet.

There’s some who sneeze at a servant girl

As they pass her in the street.

Only a servant girl, thank God,

With willing hands and heart.

I am able to earn my daily bread

And in life’s battle take my part.

You could offer me no title

I would be more proud to own

And stand as high in the sight of God

As the Queen upon her throne.
