If someone asked me, 
   'Do you believe in God?'
    I would say: 'Yes.'
And if he then expressed his doubt,
   I would tell him we were
   on equal footing:
                             for we're all
equal in the sight of God.
 
If someone asked me,
   'Why do you believe in God?'
    I would say: 'Because…'
And if he seemed less than convinced,
   I would tell him our opinions
   counted for the same:
                                    for we're all
equal in the sight of God.
 
If someone asked me,
   'Do you believe in sexual abstinence?'
    I would say: ‘Yes.' 
And if he scoffed at the idea,
   I would tell him we were
   on the same level:                          
                              for we're all
equal in the sight of God.
 
If someone asked me,
   'Is there a heaven and a hell?'
   I would answer: 'Yes.'
And if he dismissed it as a myth,
   I would tell him our
   differences were none:
                                     for we're all
equal in the sight of God.
 
Equal in the sight of God
   are we all: equal.
   And if our views
are opposed, and the answers clash,
   they tell us they're
   the same as we are:
                                and we're all
equal in the sight of God.
