C.D. Warner, et al., comp.  The Library of the World’s Best Literature.
An Anthology in Thirty Volumes.  1917.
 
Envoi to ‘The Light of Asia’
By Sir Edwin Arnold (1832–1904)
 
AH, Blessed Lord! Oh, High Deliverer!
Forgive this feeble script which doth Thee wrong
Measuring with little wit Thy lofty Love.
Ah, Lover! Brother! Guide! Lamp of the Law!
I take my refuge in Thy name and Thee!        5
I take my refuge in Thy Law of God!
I take my refuge in Thy Order! Om!
The Dew is on the lotus—rise, great Sun!
And lift my leaf and mix me with the wave.
Om mani padme hum, the Sunrise comes!        10
The Dewdrop slips into the Shining Sea!
