Humility in Truth

What can we do to make God’s light
Shine forth through the darkness around us?
We must first let it shine in our own true
selves
With that light in the niche of our inmost hearts
We can walk with steps both firm and sure
We can humbly visit the comfortless
And guide their steps. Not we, but the light
Will guide! But, Oh! The joy of being found
Worthy to bear the torch, and to say
To our brethren: “I too was in darkenss,
Comfortless, and behold, I have found
Comfort and joy in the Grace Divine!”
Thus should we pay the dues of brotherhood, – -
By walking humbly side by side,
In the ways of the Lord,
With mutual aid and comfort,
And heatfelt prayer,
Backed by action,
That God’s good purpose
May be accomplished
In us all together!

Abdullah Yusuf Ali
