Rich and poor share matching fates,
sin, as well, in matching wa-ys.
Failings don’t have diff’rent weights,
but when time comes to efface,
rich and poor pay diff’rent rates, to get clean.
Priests should treat them both the same;
hear confessions, clear the blame.
No one needs to live with shame.
Loving is God’s chosen fra-me.
Come, confess; your life reclaim, let it go.
