Kabir

(1440 - 1518 / Pratapgar, Uttar Pradesh, India)

O My heart! The Supreme Spirit


O MY heart!
the Supreme Spirit,
the great Master,
is near you: wake, oh wake!
Run to the feet of your Beloved:
for your Lord stands near to your head.
You have slept for unnumbered ages;
this morning will you not wake?
