I reply to His question

(1789)  Diip jvele diye dure jai

"Having lit a lantern, far away go I;
Having seen the light, keep Me in mind.
On melody and music's meter do I glide;
In my songs love gets combined.

"With octave I have bound the lute;
Through raga, whether it's been tuned.
You tell if a melody's familiar or obscure,
And now that's what I ask to you."

Hey King of Song, Emperor of Melody,
You are God by virtue of Your own glory.
Lord of the Universe, hey Omnipresent Deity,
With Your splendid beauty, Earth is overflowing.
