Tagore Song

A Prayer

When worldly concerns consumes

my mind

When my heart has lost faith

Even then Oh Lord

I worship you with your song

Forgive me my Lord for

these hollow prayers.

The preparation of puja

without flowers,

A melody without soul.

I call you through parched lips

in hopes that heavenly rain

will restore this desert

where my faith once

blossomed.

I call you through parched

lips to fill my mind once

more with your elixir

so that my soul can

be full.

With this desire,

I offer you my yearning

heart.
