Song of Grace by

Narayani devi dasi

I called for help and you came to save me from Putanas and Ravanas

Abused, forgotten and broken, you made me whole

You gave me your valuable time, your unlimited patience and endless forgiveness

You were my psychiatrist, my father and protective brother

You were always praying for me like no other

You wrote poems for me, you cooked for me, you sang to me

I stumbled in amazement – I knew I didn’t deserve so much causeless mercy

You healed my wounds, my modest teacher

There is no one like you, my beautiful preacher

You opened my eyes to see the goodness in life, my Mister Right, my Shining Knight.

You are humble and strong, soft metal, fragrant petals

You are mysterious like a gorgeous lion

You are pure happiness, my King of Glory, true messenger of Krishna’s story

Alpha and Omega, beginning and end, you are my life and soul to attend

Every moment with you is a joyous adventure

You are my song of grace, no one else can tell what I see in your face

Unique, transcendental, noble and kind, you are a priceless treasure to find

O gentle flower you transmit the shining sun’s power

My master, my guru, you are the friend of everyone

Being with you the rest of my days are the best of my days

O Sukadeva Prabhu, deeper than the ocean, all glories to your devotion!

I wish that every soul will adore and praise you

My love for you is eternal and ever new
