|Daivadasakam -Sree Narayana Guru Devan 1. O God, as ever from there, keep watch on us here,|
Never letting go your hand!
You are the great Captain
And the mighty steamship on the ocean
Of change and becoming is your foot.
2. Counting all here, one by one,
When all things touched are done with
Then the Seeing Eye remains
So the inner self in you attain rest.
3.Food clothes and all we need
You give to us unceasingly,
Ever saving us, seeing us well provided
Such a one, you are for us our only chief,
4. As ocean, wave, wind and depth
Let us within see the scheme
Of us, of nescience,
Your glory and you.

Both inside and outside

Of Great profundity
Let us all, together, become sunk
To dwell therein everlastingly in Happiness!
