In the dark and dense nightIn the dark and dense night
You cast Your benign Eyes upon me.
Take me and make me Your very own,
Offering Your Compassion.
I am Your innocent child.
Alone do I walk on a thick, dense path.
With Your two Arms, embrace me.
Allow me not to be drowned and
By the turbulent currents of life.
Sri Chinmoy, A God-lover's earth-Heaven-life, part 2, Agni Press, 1974
