Here is thy footstool and there rest my feet | Song Offerings, Gitanjali by Rabindranath Tagore
রবীন্দ্রনাথ ঠাকুর [ Rabindranath Tagore ]

Here is thy footstool and there rest my feet.

HERE IS THY footstool and there rest thy feet where live the poorest,

and lowliest, and lost.

When I try to bow to thee,

my obeisance cannot reacb down to the depth where thy feet rest among the poorest,

and lowliest, and lost.

Pride can never approach to where thou walkest in the clothes of the humble among the poorest,

and lowliest, and lost.

My heart can never find its way to where thou keepest company with the companionless among the poorest,

the lowliest, and the lost.
