Swami Papa Ramdas
I plunged into the depthless sea of life
And came by the rarest gem – Thy Name.
I quaffed at all the founts of nectar
Till I tasted the sweetness of Thy Name.
I gazed at the stars, the sun and the moon;
None, I found, had the brilliance of Thy Name.
My ears drank the varied strains of music,
Verily, none so entrancing
As the rhythm of Thy Name.
I sought refuge in this and that,
But met perfect shelter only in Thy Name.
For delight I strove in things great and small,
Now I am blest with bliss eternal in Thy Name.
