Composed by Yogananda, this beautiful chant is performed by Ananda singers during Ananda's Spiritual Renewal Week, Tuesday, June 28th, 2022
Whence, Om this soundless roar doth come?
When drowseth matter’s dreary drum?
On shores of bliss, Om booming breaks;
All earth, all heav'n, all body shakes.
The bumble bee now hums along,
Baby Om, now softly sings his song;
From Krishna’s flute the call is sweet,
‘Tis time the wat’ry God to meet.
Cords bound to flesh are broken all,
Vibrations burst and meteors fall;
The hustling heart, the boasting breath
No more shall cause the yogi’s death.
The God of fire with fervor sings,
Om, Om: his joyous harp now rings.
Prana God with power sounds,
The wondrous bell, the soul resounds.
All nature lies in darkness soft,
The star divine is seen aloft.
Subconscious dreams have gone to bed,
‘Tis then that one doth hear Om’s tread.
Oh, upward climb the living tree!
Hark to the cosmic symphony;
From Om the soundless roar, from Om
The call for light o'er dark to roam.
From Om the music of the spheres
From Om the mist of Nature's tears,
All things of earth and heav'n declare
Om, Om resounding everywhere.
