Commandment-keeping and proud to

Be called blessed, he comes before the

Rabbi for his crown, the entrance to

The Kingdom, and his wealth is asked

From him, the whole thing for the poor

He sags his head in grief and leaves

Mere verses before gospel sheering.

Had he stayed for the next verse

He could have found, that impossible

Though his task seemed to be,

The gospel message remains thus:

All things are possible for God, and

Kingdoms are open to all who ask.
