It was on the path Jesus
Chanced to meet
With a young man of position
Renowned for his wealth
The youth spoke, saying
"O my good lord
What, indeed, must I do
To gain eternal life?"

"Give away, give away completely
All of your many riches
Turn and follow me
To gain eternal life"

The youth regretted parting
With his many riches
To be sold and given away
To the poor and the destitute
Jesus then turned
Responding to the youth
"The rich man shall never reach
The kingdom of heaven"
