Love Song


O God, my mind is fascinated with Thy lotus feet as the bumble-bee with the flower; night and day I thirst for them.
–  Guru Nanak



How shall I come to You,
My Lord,
With garlands of marigolds and jasmines
In my hands?
But You are Spring,
Returning colours more radiant
Than a thousand garlands
In my hands!


How shall I approach You,
My Lord,
Then, with head bowed low in prayer,
Like before?
Let my cause of devotion prevail:
Your name on my lips remains,
Even when my body
From my soul has gone.
