In distress


In distress, I pray
I pray in distress
O my Master, before You
I know You are here before me.

The content of my prayer
Is not known to me, O Omniscient
I know only You are here before me
And taking all steps for the welfare of all.

I pray, only pray, my dear
Without any thought without any word
You are my words your are my thoughts
You know better than me what would be better.
