He Who Never Dies

Novid Shaid, 2002, Copyright


Fervent fires are raging

During freezing nights,

Restless seas are writhing

In the stillest nights,

Ardent hearts are sighing

During silent nights,

Yearning for their cherished Friend,

He, who never dies.


And His flames consumed them

Searing every whim,

And His sea rushed through them

Drowning all within,

And their hearts were stolen,

Plucked out from within,

Taken to their Friend’s abode,

He, who never dies.


Every single moment

They long for their Friend,

Whether safe or stricken

They entreat their Friend,

In all circumstances

They behold their Friend,

They can never live without

He, who never dies.


In the world you’ll see them

Though their hearts with Him,

Through our hearts, He gazes

Though we’re unaware,

Countless peace and blessings,

On him, the most aware,

Beloved of the loving Friend,

He, who never dies.
