The one true friend

(721)  Duhkhaharan duhkhiira vyatha

Taker of anguish, the pain of suffering,
If You did not empathize, who would feel for me?
Redeemer from affliction, when I'm in jeopardy,
If You did not arrive, who would come to me?

Planets and stars move per Your decree;
The polestar shines per Your direction.
By Your inspiration, in the sky and in the air,
Feelings of amity pervade.

Grant me sambodhi,[1] ambrosia unending;
With a smile on Your face, kindly ferry me.[2]
For those who have no one, You are theirs;
Forever You'll remain.
