Unearned mercy

(2836)  Kata tapasya pare

After much austerity,
You have come, allowed embrace.
Many ages hope given, caused to fall many a tear;
You have kept Your promise after many, many days.

I could not believe that close by You'll appear,
You will make Your light-rays shine on me.
Happened what I didn't think– heaven's sweetness came;
You've arrived adjacent, hey the One Who fascinates.

Prayer and importunity, to nothing did You listen;
I could not make You melt by efforts one hundred.
You came on Your own, after love's pollen coating;
I've realized that a kindness You have made.
