O Shadow and Illusion, dissolve!
O Suffering, fade and disappear!
O Supreme Master who shines,
In my being and each thing,
Let Thy Light be manifest and the reign,
Of Thy Peace come for all!

Like a flame that burns in silence,
Like a perfume that rises,
Straight upward without wavering,
My love goes to Thee, and like the child,
Who does not reason and has no care,
I trust myself to Thee that Thy Will may be done!

Amidst the ocean of troubled waters
May Thy Light manifest, Thy Peace radiate,
Thy Love cover the world,
I await that blessed hour,
Letting myself flow irresistibly,
Towards it as a peaceful stream flows!

Thou art alone the doer and I the instrument,
Thy voice is heard as a melodious chant,
In the stillness of my heart,
O Lord, Thou art my refuge and my blessing,
My strength, my health, my hope, and my courage,
Take me O Lord towards the boundless ocean!

My whole being prostrates before Thee,
In a gratitude beyond measure and a ceaseless worship,
That worship goes up from my heart, my mind,
Towards Thee like the pure smoke of incense,
Let Thy glory be proclaimed and sanctify life!

Let Thy Peace reign on earth,
O Divine Master, in a fecund silence I bow to Thee,
Grant, O Lord, that all shadows may be dispelled,
Before Thee may my heart be pure as a pure crystal,
So that wholly it may reflect Thee,
Thy Peace is in me, and in that Peace I see Thee!
