A Prayer

A PRAYER

 

Oh Lord, I have nothing to ask you.

I am blessed with all that one can hope for, ask for.

I have a mind to think – it is Thy glory.

I have eyes to see and ears to hear – all these are Thy glory.

I have in front of me a world vast and variegated enough for me to express myself.

Again, it is Thy glory.

I can make, I can unmake all these possibilities are again Thy glory.

I can even make this prayer to you.

This capacity to appreciate you is again Thy glory.

I seek from Thee nothing, for you have given me everything.

Inside me, outside me, Your presence is something I can't miss.

I don't want to miss.

Let Thy grace be upon me not to gain anything new, but to make me see Thy glory.

In all achievements, in all my capacities, let me see Thy glory.

 

-Swami Dayananda
