Thy Brethren


This and this alone

is true religion –

to serve thy brethren:

This is sin above all other sin,

to harm thy brethren:

In such a faith is happiness,

in lack of it is misery and pain:

Blessed is he who swerveth not aside

from this strait path:

Blessed is he whose life is lived

thus ceaselessly in serving God:

By bearing others’ burdens,

and so alone,

is life, true life, to be attained:

Nothing is hard to him who, casting self aside,

thinks only this –

“How may I serve my fellow-men?”
