Are you a favourite daughter of God?
Then you need nothing, absolutely nothing,
Either from Heaven or from earth.

Are you a favourite daughter of God?
Then feel that your Lord
Is not only within your soul-boat
But also of your life-river.

Are you a favourite daughter of God?
If you think that your Father does
everything for you,
Then you are mistaken.

If you feel that your Father will do
everything for you,
Then you are mistaken.

If you feel that He has already done
everything for you,
Then you are right, absolutely right.

Indeed, He had done everything for you
Long before your soul
came into the field of manifestation.
You just become in the life of your heart
What you eternally are in His Soul:
His, only His.
