A zealot profits naught by his zealotry O Saki
Because he makes a practice of observance O Saki
Fill quickly the wine cup O Saki
For in eternity what will be, will be, O Saki.


P 733

From devotion, experience showeth, O skinker,
No profit the devotee knoweth, O skinker!
Fill the cup, quick, or ever life goeth, O skinker!
All that is from Foreordinance floweth, O skinker!

Th 183

Devotion profits not the devotee,
For practice, Saki, proves it certainly;
The flowing beaker fill, boy, quickly, for
Whatever is, is from eternity.
