209. My God, my God!

My God, my God,
Why have You forsaken me?
    Have I told a lie?
    “No, never!”
    Have I betrayed You?
    “No, never!”
    Have I condemned Your world?
    “No, never!”
    Have I tried to dethrone You?
    “No, never!”

My Lord, my Lord,
    Why have You then
    Forsaken me?
    “Dive deep within,
    And discover the answer.”
Sri Chinmoy, The Dance of Life, part 5, Aum Press, Puerto Rico, 1973
