Thus it is that thy joy in me is so full
Language: English after the Bangla (Bengali)
Thus it is that thy joy in me is so full.
Thus it is that thou hast come down to me.
O thou lord of all heavens,
where would be thy love if I were not?
Thou hast taken me as thy partner
of all this wealth.
In my heart is the endless play of thy delight.
In my life thy will is ever taking shape.
And for this, thou who art the King of kings
hast decked thyself in beauty
to captivate my heart.
And for this thy love loses itself
in the love of thy lover,
and there art thou seen
in the perfect union of two.
