And there is no other existence in the universe *** and there is no stable existence
He is His, not ours, and He is ours *** He has no face of a continuous universe

Or is it non-existent and what I see of non-existence *** the universe has a back
And what appeared from nothing, but it is *** from the fact that an apparent truth is not easy
