Let me not confuse success with love;
Our worthiness to others must we prove?
Can we not love the unlucky ones who lose?
The humble, common, and poor will God refuse?
The great and powerful persecute the Way,
So why prefer the rich man’s resumé?
The haughty man of means is pleasing God?
Then why do we the trappings of power applaud?
