In the heart of darkness

(1032)  Aloker ei uttarane, maran kupe jiivan rupe

For this splendid ascending
From death's pit to life's beauty,
Who are You that appeared?
Unfastening my gloomy home's entry,
You were standing right before me.

Having closed the windows,
On the door I'd set a bolt.
I'd been asleep in a darkened abode,
When, calling, myself You awoke.

In my mind I'd been thinking
That I know what none conceives.
In royal dress, You entered my psyche;
My ignorance, You made evident to me.
