My Lord,

Is it such a difficult thing

For You to make a solemn promise

To me

That You will always remain

With me,

Whether I speak highly of You

Or speak ill of You?

"My child,

I shall always remain with you,

And I have

A special piece of advice for you:

Speak ill of Me if you have to,

For this is the only way

You can empty yourself

Of your doubt-poison.

But speak highly of Me if you can,

So that I can immediately

Start singing and dancing

Inside your heart-garden."
