9.

My Lord,

I try so hard to please You,

But I can never please You.

Therefore, what is the use

Of trying again and again,

Only to fail again and again?


"My child, do not give up!

Let us not give up.

It is a joint effort.

The moment you succeed,

I shall succeed as well.

Your success has to precede Mine."
