Delusions of grandeur

(1777)  Tomari ashise egiye jai

By only Your blessing I proceed,
Oh my Lord, having toed Your line.
To call my own there is nothing,
Even not the one whom I call "I".

Having been drunken with vanity,
Candidly I keep away from Thee.
But looking inside of me, I see
You have been encompassing.

One's own glory, one's own greatness,
On going to exaggerate their extent,
Only personal blemishes get enmeshed,
In both inner and outer realms.
