Only an instant does this world endure.

1. 1This is a thought which can be used to say that death and sorrow are the certain lot of all who come here, for their joys are gone before they are possessed, or even grasped. 2Yet this is also the idea that lets no false perception keep us in its hold, nor rep­resent more than a passing cloud upon a sky eternally serene. 3And it is this serenity we seek, unclouded, obvious and sure, today.

2. 1We seek Your holy world today. 2For we, Your loving Sons, have lost our way a while. 3But we have listened to Your Voice, and learned ex­actly what to do to be restored to Heaven and our true Identity. 4And we give thanks today the world endures but for an instant. 5We would go beyond that tiny instant to eternity.
