Light of my life

(1482)  Khadyot majhe tumi candera alo

Within the firefly You are light of the moon;
That is why I have been cherishing You.
Disseminating luster, making everybody bright,
You remove the darkness, inside and outside.

Utter gloom had surrounded the realm uncreated;
From the gloom was getting spewed gloom into darkness.
Upon that very gloom You applied ointment of light–
Even now You keep pouring out sweetness of life.

In that inauspicious realm when there was not a thing,
Birth or death, day or night, which of them would be?
Lord, You alone dwelt in that realm beyond bounds of time–
You will remain; You will go on pouring out more light.
