It was a game of pass the blame,
denied responsibility;
the buck was passed along the line,
avoiding culpability.

And now we play the self-same game,
but guilt must still be faced and borne,
we need to own our acts and ways,
the things we've done, the words we've sworn.

Verses 3-4 follow

Metre: LM

(a good arrangement is available from Jubilate Hymns, and can be accessed on HymnQuest 2012)
