My eyes without the vision - Dharm Dās

My eyes without the vision die athirst.
Leaving Thee no other can I sing — no other hope have I?
At every hour I pray with (clasped hands — take and make me Thy slave.
Day and night may I be devoted to Thee — without the vision faith have I none.
Dharm Dās prays with hands clasped — Grant me to dwell in Thine own world.

Dharm Dās (c.1500 - c.1600) India
