To find the place where gods reside; just look
Into a candle’s solitary flame
And listen for their voice to call your name
Within the self, and there you’ll find their nook
This place is never found in any book,
Or in the words an aging priest may preach,
That which is divine is in easy reach
Within the self, and there you’ll find a nook
The path is scattered with all you mistook
The way is cluttered with those tempting things
But when the heart finds truth it simply sings
Within the self, and there you’ll find a nook
To find the place where gods reside; just look
Within the self, and there you’ll find their nook
