Bride of the Fire

Bride of the Fire,
clasp me now close, –
Bride of the Fire!
I have shed the bloom of the earthly rose,
I have slain desire.

Beauty of the Light,
surround my life, –
Beauty of the Light!
I have sacrificed longing and parted from grief,
I can bear thy delight.

Image of Ecstasy,
thrill and enlace, –
Image of Bliss!
I would see only thy marvellous face,
Feel only thy kiss.

Voice of Infinity,
sound in my heart, –
Call of the One!
Stamp there thy radiance,
never to part, O living sun.


– Sri Aurobindo
