May his words shine in our hearts

Hence, I will enter into joyful union with him,
only to separate again,
when thoughts arise.

The grace-bestowing word of our Lord,
who abides as the Self,
becomes the means through which our suffering will end.
Through his speech
that parts us from the suffering that parts us from him
he gives us answers that enable us
to be never parted from him.
May those words,
without ever leaving this foolish heart,
shine out clearly, even in the deepest darkness,
and abolish my bondage.

From his holy mouth holy words flow forth,
conferring blessings, spoken
in the flawless language of heaven,
that his loving devotees might flourish.
