Prayer At Night

(Yogananda / S. Blood)

I am praying the prayer at night
pray with me with the deepest devotion of your soul

With closed eyes, I sit in the temple of night and worship Thee.
The sunlight, revealing a million alluring things, has vanished.

One by one, I have closed the doors of my senses,
lest the fragrance of the rose, or the song of the nightingale,
distract my love from Thee. I am alone in this dark, dark temple.

I have left everything, but where art Thou?
Darkness is haunting; but, unafraid, I am groping, seeking, crying for Thee.
Wilt Thou leave me alone? Come, show Thyself!
