Mere Prabhu, my Christ, my Lord,

Why should I worry about hunger,

When Your Love feeds my Soul?

A full stomach is soon emptied,

But a Heart of gratitude endures,

Even unto everlasting life.


Mere Prabhu, my Christ, my life.

I could have slept forever.

But You came to me in the early hours

Of the dawn, and sanctified my life.


O Light of forgiveness, each moment,

Like a river of diamond rain,

You wash my muddy banks.

Thus my acquired sediments are removed,

From the heat of daily strife.


Mere Prabhu, sweet Jesus, my Light,

I saw Your suffering face,

I cried and cried. I felt Your forgiving Heart,

I danced … and danced.

Quote from Psalms

The Lord is my Shepherd
"He restores my soul; He guides me in the paths of righteousness For His name's sake. Even thought I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You have anointed my head with oil; my cup overflows.…” Psalm 23: 4 (Study Bible)

The Lamentations of The Soul

Listen to the fish, as it laments

Its lack of freedom.

Caught in a net of its own desires,

It longs for the intimacy of marine corals,

For serenity and protection on the ocean’s bed.


Listen to the soft whispering of winds,

As they sing to the meadow of sunflowers.

Yet we who were born with golden wings,

Can only envy, the soaring ascent of eagles.

The Light of the child’s innocence, longs to bring

Joy, to the millennial emptiness of the Heart.


Come! My Beloved, Unfurl Thy sails;

Let the rays of the moon kiss my soul.

Carry my Spirit, to the luminance of the sun,

So as to erase my darkness, from this world of shadows.
