The Only Hope His Divine Grace

In 1936, Srila Prabhupada was in Bombay when he composed and offered two historic tributes to his spiritual master, His Divine Grace Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakur: this poem and an essay entitled “The Universal Teacher”. Both were published in The Harmonist on the occasion of the vyasapuja celebration of Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakur’s appearance. The poem delighted Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakur, who appreciated the sixth stanza in particular, noting that it captured the essence of his preaching work: defeating impersonalism.

LYRICS

(1)

Adore, adore ye all The happy day

Blessed than heaven Sweeter than May.

When he appeared at Puri The holy place,

My Lord and Master His Divine Grace.

(2)

Oh! my Master The evangelic angel.

Give us Thy light Light up Thy candle.

Struggle for existence A human race.

The only hope His Divine Grace.

(3)

Misled we are All going astray,

Save us Lord Our fervent pray.

Wonder thy ways To turn our face

Adore Thy feet Your Divine Grace.

(4)

Forgotten Krsna We fallen souls,

Paying most heavy The illusion’s toll.

Darkness around All untrace.

The only hope His Divine Grace.

(5)

Message of service Thou hast brought,

A healthful life As Caitanya wrought.

Unknown to all It’s full of brace.

That’s your gift Your Divine Grace.

(6)

Absolute is sentient Thou hast proved

Impersonal calamity Thou hast moved.

This gives us a life Anew and fresh.

Worship Thy feet Your Divine Grace.

(7)

Had you not come Who had told

The message of Krsna Forceful and bold.

That’s your right You have the mace

Save me a fallen Your Divine Grace.

(8)

The line of service As drawn by you

Is pleasing and healthy Like morning dew.

The oldest of all But in new dress

Miracle done Your Divine Grace.

 

Abbay Charan dasa.

I desire to fully surrender my life and soul to Srila Prabhupada. Then I can become instrumental in assisting him with his mission of delivering all the conditioned souls to the shelter of Sri Sri Gaura-Nitai and Sri Sri Radha Krishna.
