Where is the quid pro quo?

(1770)  Kena bhalabaso amare

Why do You love me?
I don't know, oh, I don't know.
Always Your treasury's allocation I go on taking;
And yet, in spite that, search for You I don't.

At home and abroad, where I stay is Yours only;
I walk on just Your path, I tell only Your story.
Your song I keep singing,
Yet I get not intimate with Thee.

You provide everything; not a thing do I give.
I receive all things; nothing You accept.
A lamp You keep bearing; I don't light a match;
If You be absent, I do not exist.
