This is an effort at translation of a very popular Hindi bhajan (religious song) - Tu pyar ka saagar hai. Any shortcoming in the effected translation is all mine.

The original song is too deep and powerful. I'm including a video for that song.

"Tu pyaar ka saagar hai" song

Translation of the Song

You are the ocean of love

Thirsty we are, for a drop of You

Turned away from your door

Where do we go from here


You are the ocean of love


The injured soul is fluttering its wings to fly

The wings are soft and the sight is dim

It has to cross the sea of life

Make it understand my Father

Where did it flounder

Where did it sin


You are the ocean of love


This side the life moves on

That side death is still

Who knows what the limit is

This is the dilemma we are in

Say it softly in my ears

Which way do we come


You are the ocean of love

Thirsty we are, for a drop of You
