My Lord,

The more I satisfy You,

The more You demand.

Before You wanted from me

Only love, devotion and surrender.

Now You have added obedience.

If I start obeying You,

Then You will invent

Something more!

"My child,

You failed miserably

In your love-devotion-surrender-examination.

I want you to study

The obedience-course,

Which is abundantly easier."

And, my Lord,

If I fail in Your obedience-course,

Will You have something

Even easier?

"My child,

Yes, I will have something

For you

Easier than the easiest —

My last resort —

A sesquipedalian cane


An iron rod!"

My Lord,

Before You go that far,

I am immediately starting

My obedience-love-devotion-surrender-life.

I shall obey You

Most sincerely.

I shall start loving You

Most sincerely.

I shall devote myself

To Your service

Most sincerely.

I shall give You

My unconditional surrender

Most sincerely.

"Then, My child,

Come, come, come

And sit beside Me

On My Golden Throne."
