0 Amitabha, wondrous
0 wisdom which Lord Buddha taught,
Profound and full of beauty!
Thou, the abiding and sublime,
Art never moved in change of time,
O teacher of life's duty.
Cleanse from error,
Free from terror;
Those who are with blindness stricken.
Causation's dire necessity,
Dread of the blind, is yet the key
To every doubt and query.
Eternal truth when understood
Turns curse to bliss, the bad to good
And gives new strength the weary.
All the yearning
Of souls burning
Glories in the realms transcendent.
0 use life's
moments while they flee,
In aspect of eternity:
In acts abides the actor.
Eternity is immanent,
And life remains, such as 'tis spent,
For aye a living factor;
Glories of the realms transcendent.
