Both tender and severe



(268)  Bandhu tomar kathoratay

Abiding friend, from Your severity
I will not get afraid, no, not a bit.
On my journey along the path of light,
Gazing at You, I will proceed.

Those who say You are harsh,
They do not grasp Your deep concern.
Your severity, it is only
A veil to preserve tenderness.

Those who say You are merciless,
They go far away from Thee.
Coming close, they would realize
There is none else so goodhearted.
