Within this earthen vessel

By Kabir
(15th Century)

English version by Rabindranath Tagore

Within this earthen vessel are bowers and groves,
and within it is the Creator:

Within this vessel are the seven oceans and the unnumbered stars.
The touchstone and the jewel-appraiser are within;

And within this vessel the Eternal soundeth, and the spring wells up.
Kabir says: "Listen to me, my Friend! My beloved Lord is within."
