Aspirations of lofty thoughts abound,
Beautiful and bounteous words converge,
Emanating from the depths of the mind,

Eternally love soars and spirals in glory,
Dedicating dreams and desires to Hope,
Illuminating our path to the richest of joys,
Culminating in the safe haven of lasting peace!
Through a world of suffering and pain we pass!
Inspiration and faith provide us with the arms to
Overcome and crush the threat of universal decay!
Now, let our souls celebrate blessings of purification!
