Curious of Jesus and so he could see
little Zacchaeus climbed up a tree.
Jesus passing that way
looked up and did say,
“Into your house you'll give welcome to me.”
“From where comes his wealth?” Some grumblers did groan.
“I'll give half to the poor of all that I own;
those I've fleeced moreover
repay four times over.”
To him that day salvation was known.
