Here is the quotation used for the lyrics and the lyrics and chords below:

“O SON OF BEING! Thou art My lamp and My light is in thee. Get thou from it thy radiance and seek none other than Me. For I have created thee rich and have bountifully shed My favor upon thee.”

E minor. D major. C major
O son of Being, busy not thyself with this world

E minor D C major
For with fire we test the gold and with gold we test our servants

(Repeat twice)

E minor. D major. C major
Thou art my lamp and my light is in thee

E minor. D major. C major
Get thou from it thy radiance and seek none other than me

A minor 7. B major. 7. C major D major

For I have created thee rich and have bountifully shed my favour upon thee.
