  • What shall I give Thee Oh, my Lord?

    Courtesy: Smt.Saroja Ramanujam

    Kuchela gave flaked rice, you gave him a kingdom of devotion

    Kubja gave you inguents and you removed her hunch

    Sabari gave you some fruits and got the kingdom of heaven

    What can I give you my Lord to get such kind of devotion!

    What do I have to give you which is not yours already

    I have my sins , my ignorance, which alone are mine

    Can I exchange them for your causeless grace

    But that will be a bad bargain for you Oh Lord!

    I can say I love you and offer you my love

    But it is but a drop in the ocean of your love

    As long as I say 'I love you' or 'I give you,'

    I do not deserve your grace for, the 'I' should go.

    Take the 'I' from me and give me 'Thou,'

    Let me live in 'Thee' forgetting myself

    Make me yours and let the air I breathe

    Bring your name and fill my heart .
