From the state of infidelity to that of faith is but a breath
And from a state of doubt to that of certainty is but a breath
Hold thou dear this one moment that is pleasant
For of the outcome of our being there is but a moment.

 

F4 49

Would you that spangle of Existence spend
About THE SECRET--quick about it, Friend!
A Hair perhaps divides the False and True--
And upon what, prithee, may life depend?

F4 50

A Hair perhaps divides the False and True,
Yes; and a single Alif were the clue--
Could you but find it--to the Treasure-house,
And peradventure to THE MASTER too;

HA 49b

From the state of infidelity to that of faith is but a breath.
And from a state of doubt to that of certainty is but a breath,
Hold thou dear this one precious moment.
For of the outcome of our being there is but a moment.

HA 50b

From the state of infidelity to that of faith is but a breath.
And from a state of doubt to that of certainty is but a breath,
Hold thou dear this one precious moment.
For of the outcome of our being there is but a moment.

Nic 20

La distance qui sépare l'incrédulité de la foi n'est que d'un souffle, celle qui sépare le doute de la certitude n'est également que d'un souffle; passons donc gaiement cet espace précieux d'un souffle, car notre vie aussi n'est séparée (de la mort) que par l'espace d'un souffle.

P 130

From unbelief to faith's abiding-place a breath is;
'Twixt certitude's and doubt's domain the space a breath is:
This one sole precibus breath I rede thee, therefore, cherish
For the whole sum of life, in any case, a breath is.

Th 55

From doubt to certainty is but a breath,
A breath from unfaith's halting place to faith,
This precious breath then do you cherish, for
Life's sum is but a breath from birth to death.

Wh 24

From doubt to clear assurance is a breath,
A breath from infidelity to faith;
Oh, precious breath I enjoy it while you may,
'Tis all that life can give, and then comes death.
