In the creation of God-the Lord Almighty
Good and bad, joy and sorrow part of the mighty
And the lowly; we call it karma of our past
“Help ever and hurt never” keep us well to the last.
Health and ill health many a time we are the cause
Let us take care in all respects sure lest alas
We have many including leprosy, my God
People around detest and look down upon, Lord.
Mahatma Gandhi hosted and treated at home
A leprosy patient and that made him Mahatma
Leprosy not incurable, God and Doctors cure
Free from the same by their efforts and grace quite sure.
Described as the “Mahatma Gandhi” of Japan, The Nippon Foundation’s Chairman Yohei Sasakawa has made it his life’s mission to help eliminate leprosy
