848 The Expressions Possessed by Those Who Are Perfected

Verse 1

When people step onto the path of perfection,

their old disposition can be changed.

And their lives keep growing, and growing and growing,

and they enter more deeply into the truth.


Verse 2

They can loathe the world and those who don’t pursue the truth,

especially loathe themselves,

but even more than that, they come to clearly know themselves.

They are willing to live by and pursue the goal of truth.


Refrain

This is what the perfected have.

This is what the perfected have.


Bridge

They no longer wish to follow their own minds’ thoughts,

and they loathe man’s self-conceit and haughtiness.

They speak with a strong sense of propriety,

and they handle things with discernment and with wisdom.

They are loyal and obedient to God.


Verse 3

If they experience chastisement and judgment,

they do not become passive, but give thanks to it.

They believe they cannot do without God’s judgment;

and through it they can receive God’s protection.


Verse 4

They do not pursue a faith of peace and joy,

nor a faith of seeking bread to fill their hunger.

Nor do those upon the path of perfection

go in pursuit of fleeting fleshly pleasures.


Refrain

This is what the perfected have.

This is what the perfected have.
