Singer of Light

(1631)  Tumi esechile diip jvelechile

You had come; a lantern You had kindled.
With what force of incantation You dispelled the darkness!
In mind's mirror You embellished, layer after layer,
With thought and form, ringed by tune and music-measure.

You told: "Have no fear;
A love-song I sing.
By the moment, by the instant, I desire purity.

"Arriving am I;
Into mortal sphere I dive.
I stay night and day, heedless of right or wrong time."
