Keshava Betts
October 29, 2021
Introduction (Written by the composer for use in performances)

“The cloister echoes still their fervent prayers. Monks pass here no longer, but my heart Joins them in memory. Softly it chants its loneliness for Thee.”

Lyrics (composed by Swami Kriyananda)

Long I’ve called You, my Lord,
Long I’ve called You.
Many years I have longed for Your sight;
Bathed the darkness with tears of devotion,
Offered candles in prayer to Your light.

How much longer, Friend,
Must I cry Your name?
I am Yours, ever Yours.
Will You come?
