Come my Lord

(1473)  Tumi parvat ami upalakana

You are the mountain, I am a stone's particle;
I exist underneath Your shelter.
Along the two sides of Your river,
Lying in a bed of sand, I have lived on.

Please tell me, when will You appear?
My desire unrequited, will it be fulfilled?
Abed and dreaming, awake or asleep,
Your thoughts, I have gone on contemplating.

Golden twilight far removes itself;
The dark-of-night's shadow thickens.
Oh Nightlord, please make haste and come–
A living being breaks down in terror.
I am but Your moonlight's tiny speck;
I dance on the current of Your kindness.
