They will hear but never comprehend,
see but not perceive.
Their heart’s too dull to take it in
and they no more believe.
Their eyesight is at best bereft,
their ears have nearly fallen deaf,
otherwise they might digest
what’s right and therefore they’d be blessed!
For if they’d kept their eyes peeled
and their earholes were not sealed,
the kingdom, it would be revealed,
and they might turn and be healed!
