my prayer

My body, mind, and soul
They are all yours
The joy of surrender is thine too
I am free as thy child and rest forever
At thy lotus feet.

Lead me to do what pleases you
Keep me away from the things you hate
Helpless I am like a child in thy arms
With faith eternal I depend on thee
Protect me O mother
I have none but thee
I surrender my self
At thy lotus feet.
