Light! Light! Let it shine in our hearts, however dark the world
may be.
Let it flow forth from our hearts, however sombre the horizons
may be.
Though I have only a hut in the valley, lit in the night by a
meagre candle,
my eye reflects in the hut all the light it beholds in the world.
And should the storm blow and uproot my hut as it uproots the
trees,
carrying it to the river’s mouth,
there is a cave there among the rocks impregnable to the storm,
and there
Is the light of the sun and the stars.
And should the heavens darken and the planets and the stars be
eclipsed,
still in this human heart is light eternal.
Let light shine in our hearts, however sombre the horizons may
be.
