From Swami Kriyananda's Oratorio "Christ Lives", performed in the Temple of Light by the Ananda Village Choir.
Mother of wisdom, mercy and grace,
Grant us Thy vision, grant us Thy peace.
Our love receive, though blindly we pray;
Silently guide our thoughts when we stray.
How many years, so proud of our wisdom,
Turning from God, we’ve wandered alone!
So many years we’ve boasted but madness!
Now our souls call Thee: Make us Thy own.
