From the time you came to know Me,
From the time you sought the truth,
From the time you said above you
There would be none of you,
You sought out a god
And you have come to Me.
Many seek, many claim,
But this distinction many do not make:
I am God, above you I stand.
Not you, not an image, not any other man
Is in my place. O, man, you did seek.
Unlike many, you remained below Me.
Many seek my place. Many have tried
To occupy what shall only be mine.
Here I confound those who seek
To place themselves in place of Me.
I alone raise. I alone bring low.
I alone decided where each man will go.
Those who remained below Me,
Who believe my son came from Me,
I give the place you did seek.
