Rabindranath Tagore

(7 May 1861 – 7 August 1941 / Calcutta (Kolkata), Bengal Presidency / British India)

Face To Face


Day after day, O lord of my life,
shall I stand before thee face to face.
With folded hands, O lord of all worlds,
shall I stand before thee face to face.

Under thy great sky in solitude and silence,
with humble heart shall I stand before thee face to face.

In this laborious world of thine, tumultuous with toil
and with struggle, among hurrying crowds
shall I stand before thee face to face.

And when my work shall be done in this world,
O King of kings, alone and speechless
shall I stand before thee face to face.

    Here the poet indicates a clear conscience
    That is why he boldly tells the Lord his mind
    Because he is true, honest and very sincere
    He is ready to be before God face to face

    This poem can be used as a holy prayer
    As we confess to God our innocent toil
    We confirm that we follow noble ways
    A lovely poem by that great Indian poet. (Report) Reply
