On High Waves

Mira Bai

Let me behold Thee in every being,
I am singing and dancing
to have sight of Thee.
I cannot suppress my tears
however much I try.
They flow like streams and drench my clothes.
I wait the whole night to meet Thee.
Every sound stirs me within.


My bosom heaves, my eyes ache,
my ears burn,
I find solace in these tears
quenching of my thirst
joy in Thy remembrance
pleasure in Thy name
bliss in my dancing
happiness in singing Thy praise
Mira's Lord is Giridhar.
She cannot live without Him.
