O My Mind.

O my mind,
Love they Lord
As the lotus loves water.
Buffeted by waves,
It falters not in love.
Creatures of water die
When taken out of water.

O my mind,
How wilt thou get release
Without such love?
Thy dear ones, O Lord,
Are saturated with Thy love,
On them Thou bestowest
The treasure of devotion.

O my mind,
Love the Lord
As the fish loves water.
The more the water,
The greater her delight;
Her body and mind
Revel in peace.
Without water,
She cannot live for a moment;
God alone knows
The anguish of her heart.

O my mind,
Love the Lord
As the rainbird loves rain.
The lakes may be full,
The earth may be green;
Of what use are they
If the raindrop is not there?
If His grace is there,
We shall reach our goal;
Or else we shall reap
Whatever we sow.
