                     All right, you ask me if I think we’ll be
                    Together when we’ve left this earthly plane,                   
                    If there is truly immortality                    
                    And that the essence of us will remain                    
                    And even may return for future rounds                   
                    Of mortal life, to take yet further strides                    
                    And add more gems to our celestial crowns                   
                    By learning how to live where love abides,                    
                    Where magnanimity is our grand aim,                    
                    Our souls alight with charity and love,                    
                    Not seeking after temporal acclaim                     
                    But, in the spirit of the Holy Dove,
                        Content to nestle in the arms of God,
                        Protected by His holy staff and rod—
