O Lord, what shall I say to You?
You broke my dark slumber
and now, I shall move on the path of light.
I shall move, I shall move, I shall move!
You threaded my longneglected flower
into Your garland.
You took on Your lap,
the offerings of my mind
which were soiled with dust.
In exchange for all I had,
I have received You.
To You alone I will listen,
I will listen, I will listen, I will listen!
O Lord, what shall I say to You? You have broken my dark slumber, and now I shall move on
the path of light. My flower which was long neglected, You have threaded into Your garland.
Those offerings of my mind were soiled with the dust of pettiness, You have graciously
taken them on Your lap. I have given away my all, and then only I have received You.
Henceforward, I shall move along Your path. Only Your words I will hear, only Your
dictates I will follow. This is the proper path for me.
