Door of My Heart
Bengali Chant translated by Paramhansa Yogananda

Door of my heart, open wide I keep for Thee.

Wilt Thou come, wilt Thou come? Just for once, come to me?

Will my days fly away without seeing Thee, my Lord?

Night and day, night and day, I look for Thee night and day.

Listen to “Door of My Heart”

I Am the Bubble, Make Me the Sea
By Paramhansa Yogananda

So do Thou my Lord: Thou and I, never apart

Wave of the sea, dissolve in the sea!

I am the bubble, make me the sea,

Make me the sea, oh, make me the sea!

Wave of the sea, dissolve in the sea!

I am the bubble, make me the sea.

Listen to “I Am the Bubble, Make Me the Sea”

I Will Never Forget Thee
By Paramhansa Yogananda

Listen, listen, listen to my heart’s song,

Listen, listen, listen to my heart’s song:

I will never forget Thee; I will never forsake Thee;

I will never forget Thee; I will never forsake Thee.

Listen to “I Will Never Forget Thee”

When I Awake
By Swami Kriyananda

When I awake I’ll see Thy face, When I awake I’ll see Thy light!

Mother awake me from my dreams! Mother awake me in Thy light!

Hand in hand we’re dancing together, dancing together in Thy light!

When I awake I’ll end all sorrows, When I awake I’ll know Thy joy!

Mother awake me from my dreams! Mother awake me in Thy joy!

Hand in hand we’re dancing together, dancing together in Thy joy!

When I awake I’ll end all fear, When I awake I’ll see Thy love!

Mother awake me from my dreams! Mother awake me in Thy love!

Hand in hand we’re dancing together, dancing together in Thy love!

Listen to “When I Awake”

    Thank you! I really like the pacing and rhythm and voice on “Listen, listen, listen.” What a joy to listen to and chant along.

      Hi Meenakshi, do you mean “Cloud Colored Christ?” The lyrics are:

      Oh my cloud colored Christ, come,
      Oh my cloud colored Christ, come,
      Oh my Christ, oh my Christ,
      Oh my Christ, oh my Christ,
      Jesus Christ, come.

      It is indeed a thrilling chant.

      This is the only version of it I could find for sale through Ananda (this is in India):

      I’d also recommend the recording of Yogananda singing this chant, published by Self-Realization Fellowship in Songs of My Heart.
