Prayer No. 2
O Lord, thou art transcendent and immanent,
Both, at the same time—the one Self in all,
Thou alone exist in all and as all.
Help me O Lord to cleanse and purify,
This mind, intellect and understanding,
This heart—the sum of all these three,
From clinging and rejecting within itself.
Help me O Lord be centered in thee,
O ocean of compassion and grace,
Thou art supreme fulfillment itself,
All duality is perfectly reconciled in thee.
Help me O Lord in real renunciation,
Which is every abiding in thee only,
This heart struggles with letting go,
Not realizing letting go is itself abundance.
Help me O Lord by thy kind favor,
Light the lamp of devotion in the heart,
So unwavering I be in self-surrender,
Every thought, word and deed ever praise thee.
