6174. Your heart's selfless deedsIf you want to distinguish yourself
By your mind’s giant actions, you can.
But God is not going to grant you
His smiling Face.
If you want to distinguish yourself
By your heart’s selfless deeds,
Then God will grant you
Not only His smiling Face
But also His Vision-feeding Nest.
