by Paramhansa Yogananda

From Praecepta Lessons, 1938

It behooves not Thy lily-tender feet
To dance on the hard-hearted soil of Souls.
On the petals of sympathy for others,
May Thy tenderness dance forever.

Divine Mother
May I feel in my heart Thy heart-throbs;
In my happiness, Thy joy;
In my activity, Thy power of direction;
In my Soul, Thy Spirit.

Divine Mother,
Open wide the bud of my devotion
And release Thy fragrance,
That it may spread from my Soul to the Souls of others,
Ever whispering of Thee.

Divine Mother,
I lay all the flowers of my love
At Thy Feet of Eternity.

I pray that I may behold my love in others,
And in the light of that greater love,
May I behold Thy unveiled Face of Peace.
May I behold myself in others,
And may I ever perceive Thee
Enthroned in our united hearts.

In the heart of my whispers,
I feel the stir of Thy whispers.
In the light of my burning love for Thee,
I behold Thy sacred Face of Silence at last.

O Divine Mother,
Unite our hearts as One Heart,
That on the sacred altar of United Hearts,
We may find Thine Omnipresence
Enthroned forever.
