All for God

See Luke 21:1-4

Observe this widow, how her back is bent
From years of toil to earn a scanty crust,
Washing the clothes of wealthy fops intent
On feasting grandly and the joys of lust.

See now these others standing tall and straight,
Their bodies bathed an oiled with utmost care,
Arrayed in garments for affairs of state,
With not an errant spot or speck or hair.

These of their abundance have given so;
She of her penury has given little;
But all their lavishness is but for show,
While she has given all, her every tittle.

Therefore I tell you she is greatly blessed,
For she has given more than all the rest.
