Now, that you are in the next world,
What did you bring Home?
Hoping, you joined the place of the justified;
You know your True Home,
For having revered It for all time,
For having It in front of your foreseeing eyes.
Hoping, you were not deceived or deceiving
While you were still breathing.
Hoping, you did not fall
Into a grievous - uncontrite transgression
When you were given
Life's fathomless possession.
Now, that you arrived in the afterlife,
What was your earned income?
Trust, you did not see the ugliness
Of laziness, greediness and loftiness,
Damaging gratifications of hideous temptations,
Deadly leprosy of hidden jealousy,
The unsightliness of superfluity,
The repulsiveness of impurity,
Quarrel and irascibility.
Hoping that you had loved the unlovable
Until you found them likeable.
Now that you are in the next world
Hope that you have seen your soul pristine
With your True Liberator's Face within...
For all time praying and hoping
You found your True Home.
And, you my earthly brother,
Do you possess the longing
To be nearest to Him and His Sacred Mother?
Do you wish the same for your own brother?
Is there enough grain?
