The ultimate target of our life.
Let us praise the gods for their grace.
Let us praise the gods for their mercy.
Let us praise them for their gifts.
As religion is with the source
As we adress them with their names or titles.

As we adress them with our wishes, our goals,
our worries and our suffering.
As we adress them with silence, with worldneeds,
and with the appraisal of their greatness.

to a godhead, truly attains their
