Safe in Thy hands

O! Amma, now I’m safe in Thy hands,
I now know not, “What is sorrow?”

O! Amma, now I’m safe in Thy hands,
I now know not, “What is unrest?”

O! Amma, now I’m safe in Thy hands,
I now know not, “What are ‘hell’ and ‘hellish fire’?”

O! Amma, now I’m safe in Thy hands,
I now know not, “What are ‘delusion’ and ‘fear’?”

O! Amma, now I’m safe in Thy hands,
I now know not, “What are ‘disease’ and ‘worry’?”

O! Amma, now I’m safe in Thy hands,
I now know not, “What are ‘war’ and ‘enemy’?”

O! Amma, now I’m safe in Thy hands,
Carefully watched over by the Omniscient glances.

O! Amma, now I’m safe in Thy hands,
Calling Thy name, “Amma, O! Darling Mother”
