O glorious, eternal Ancient One
Your face is a bright, transcendental sun
lighten this dark world and the tears I weep
My heart, Meher, I give to you to keep.

Creator, yet creation-less you are
Truth and truth's body, divine Avatar
who, through compassion, the three worlds maintains -
destroy this ignorance that life sustains.

These five lights are the whirling spokes of breath
of the world's wheel that bears me unto death
unless you, who are infinitely kind
break the wheels hub which is conditioned mind.

This incense is my love, these fruits, my art
which, to please you I have shaped from my heart;
accept them as you would a simple flower
that has no use beyond it's shining hour.

You are my self, I sing to you in praise
and beg your love to bear me through the days
til you, the Everliving Perfect One
illume my darkness with your shining sun.
