His limitless compassion

(1965)  Nai je kona gun sabi agun

I have no quality, all is without worth;
Nonetheless You came, Lord, being gracious–
You bestowed a kindness beyond measure.
By Your own virtue, You made me beholden;
Because You demonstrated what is compassion.

By one's own strength nobody obtains Thee;
Indra's elephant cannot be bound by a flea.
But despite our inability, our own penury,
We still see Your grace in myriad fashions.

In Your presence, Lord, I will ask for nothing;
More than You I am not aware of me.
My transition from resistance to being ready,
Time and again, You keep getting it done.
