The world’s no stage where we are acting
to show how good we think we are;
this is no place to call attention,
or seek acclaim from near or far.

Our prayers are worthless, void and empty
when uttered for the crowd’s applause,
much more of worth are silent actions,
compassion shown behind closed doors.

Verses 3-4 follow
