Comments about Santosh Kumar
Greater Than All The Treasures On Earth
O Lord! Righteousness, your kingdom’s sceptre,
Who’ll anoint us with oil of virtue?
Where are your ministering spirits
to guide me in the hour of temptation
in the wilderness
to help me
say goodbye to flesh
and bless me with joy of faith
magnified in my body,
to attain salvation through prayer
and gospel of your saints.
Fulfill my joy, O Lord
uniting me with your mind
devoid of strife or vainglory
I decide to do Thy will, O God
to sacrifice myself for the terrorists’ sins
to sit down on your right hand
to obey your laws...
