O ye that hear and understand, look for your Shepherd! O look for him! For He that shall come is nigh at hand, and He shall give you everlasting rest. O recieve the gift that is giver unto you, recieve it and be glad. Flee the shadow of this world, be ready to the reward of the kingdom. O ye that hear and understand, upon you the everlasting light shall shine forever and ever.
