Passing strange

(1695)  Tomari stutite tomare bhajite

To worship You through Your praise,
Why do I go on, Lord, You please say...
Please do say, please do say.
Homage to embellish with Your flowers,
Why did this become a weakness?

With Your lamp and with Your wick,
Offering Your greeting, what does it accomplish?
Transcending both mind and speech, You do not persist
Within chains of hymnal praise, even for a minute.

For holding You we build shrines
To Him Whom even the vast heavens cannot bind.
Scriptures will not suffice; they cannot describe...
Did He arrive and take leave, idols inside?
