Does the road wind up-hill all the way?
Yes, to the very end.
Will the day's journey take the whole long day?
From morn to night, my friend.
But is there for the night a resting-place?
A roof for when the slow dark hours begin.

Of labour you shall find the sum.
Will there be beds for me and all who seek?
Yea, beds for all who come.
