Touch my heart with touchstone of fire,
And by sacrificing me in its divine flame,
Make this life of mine pure and virtuous.
Hold aloft the flaming body of mine,
And light up the lamp in temple of yours.
Allow that flame of light, to keep glowing throughout night and day,
To the humming of my song.
Let your divine touch upon the surface of darkness,
Blossom stars after stars, all through the night.
The divine gaze of your eyes causes darkness to dispel,
And wherever your eyesight is set, one can see only light.
All my pain would then get burnt out in a flare radiating skywards.
