He shall not die who seeks the Way of Truth;
He shall not see corruption who doth walk
With stainless feet the Path of Purity;
He shall not wander in dark worlds of woe
Who finds the Gate of Good and enters there,
For he shall taste of immortality
While feasting at the table of his Lord.
This poem is selected from the book Poems of Peace.
