By Sri Aurobindo
Bride of the Fire, clasp me now close,
Bride of the Fire!
I have shed the bloom of the earthly rose,
I have slain desire.
Beauty of the Light, surround my life,
Beauty of the Light!
I have sacrificed longing and parted from grief,
I can now bear thy delight.
Image of Ecstasy, thrill and enlace,
Image of Bliss!
I would see only thy marvelous face,
Feel only thy kiss.
Voice of Infinity, sound in my heart,
Call of the One!
Stamp there thy radiance, never to part,
O living Sun.
