His having arrived

(1837)  Susmita candraloke

Under a sweetly smiling moon's light,
Who are You that turned up, anonymous?
Throughout the world glorified,
The effort to attain You is endless.

At the human heartcore, any filth there had been,
The poison, the malice... they had been kept nourished.
Them You banished in the twinkling of an eye...
It's a small particle of Your kindness.

Even if a man be not weak or extremely needy,
Happy days will come again upon stream of Your mercy.
You stand awaiting, closer having arrived...
You satisfy hope and aspiration.
