350. Underestimation and overestimation

When I underestimated
  My Power,
God placed me on His throne of Bliss.

When I underestimated
  My Light,
God offered me His Garland of Victory.

When I overestimated
  My Power,
Satan demanded and confiscated my passport.

When I overestimated
  My Light,
Death mocked my height
   And
Deported me into the Land of Destruction-Night.
