Alone Poems: 88 / 500

My God And My Lord

Rating: 4.6

Eyes are at rest, the stars are setting.
Hushed are the stirrings of birds in their nests,
Of monsters in the ocean.

You are the Just who knows no change,
The Balance that can never swerve,
The Eternal which never passes away.

The doors of Kings are bolted now and guarded by soldiers.
Your Door is open to all who call upon You.

My Lord,
Each love is now alone with his beloved.
And I am alone with You.

I’m glad to be introduced to this poet. As with other translated works, it’d be nice to know the translator—not all translations are equal. This one, however, breathes a calm and conviction that is lovely. The doors of the kings are bolted and guarded... Your door is open... What a contrast between those who live in fear and those who trust in the Eternal! -GK
