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.
