(this day is dear to)
III. 118. aj din ke main jaun balihari
THIS DAY is dear to me above all other days, for to-day the Beloved Lord is a guest in my house;
My chamber and my courtyard are beautiful with His presence.
My longings sing His Name, and they are become lost in His great beauty:
I wash His feet, and I look upon His Face; and I lay before
Him as an offering my body, my mind, and all that I have.
What a day of gladness is that day in which my Beloved, who is my treasure, comes to my house!
All evils fly from my heart when I see my Lord.
'My love has touched Him; my heart is longing for the Name which is Truth.'
Thus sings Kabir, the servant of all servants.
