Thou hast made me endless, such is thy pleasure | Song Offerings, Gitanjali by Rabindranath Tagore

Thou hast made me endless, such is thy pleasure.

Thou hast made me endless, such is thy pleasure.
This frail vessel thou emptiest again and again,
and fillest it ever with fresh life.
This little flute of a reed
thou hast carried over hills and dales,
and hast breathed through it melodies eternally new.
At the immortal touch of thy hands
my little heart looses its limits in joy and gives birth
to utterance ineffable.
Thy infinite gifts come to me only
on these very small hands of mine. Ages pass,
and still thou pourest,
and still there is room to fill.
