On the shore

(495)  Amay dure rekho nako

Please don't keep me at a distance;
I want to be in Your presence.
My melody is attuned to Thine,
In Your heart and soul, I survive.

On sands by a river's landing stage,
Musing on You, I pass my days.
Even among countless afflictions,
Going on living, in joy I dance.

Pervaded by the desert's cruelty,
My sky is dried up by a fiery heat.
Amid this too is Your azure blue;[1]
I pray for shade in thoughts of You.
