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 lo 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.
