At last I find a meaning of soul's birth
  Into this universe terrible and sweet,
I who have felt the hungry heart of earth
  Aspiring beyond heaven to Krishna's feet.

I have seen the beauty of immortal eyes,
  And heard the passion of the Lover's flute,
And known a deathless ecstasy's surprise
  And sorrow in my heart for ever mute.

Nearer and nearer now the music draws,
  Life shudders with a strange felicity;
All Nature is a wide enamoured pause
  Hoping her lord to touch, to clasp, to be.

For this one moment lived the ages past;
The world now throbs fulfilled in me at last.
