The fear, the doubt, 'tis not your soul...
what be these lessons at hand
what is it that lies at heart's command
what TRUTH be masked by deception's call
what beckons from the spirit of ALL
what shadows upon light yet prevail
what is this din that echoes travail
the fear, the doubt, 'tis not your soul true
'tis but illusion cast upon you
deceit's binding cloak now to be ever shed
from TRUTH within soul let thee be led
beauty expressed in blessed word and artful deed
YOU the light and power of TRUTH in living creed.
