Has not my heart grown holy, filled with a better life
Since I do love? Why did you heed me more
When I was proud and wild,
Spoke many words, all empty?

Ah, people like what sells well in the market
And underlings respect but those with power.
Belief in godliness is
The sole province of the godly.
