Chant the Sweet Name of God

With beaming face chant the sweet name of God

Till in your heart the nectar overflows.

Drink of it ceaselessly and share it with all!

If ever your heart runs dry, parched by the flames 

Of worldly desire, chant the sweet name of God,

And heavenly love will moisten your arid soul.

Be sure, O mind, you never forget to chant

His holy name: when danger stares in your face,

Call on Him, your Father Compassionate;

With His name’s thunder, snap the father of sin!

Come, let us fulfill our heart’s desires

By drinking deep of Everlasting Joy,

Made one with Him in Love’s pure ecstasy.

~ A song of Sri Ramakrishna
