Ravidas : You are me, and I am you

The 15th c. CE mystic and poet Ravidas was a contemporary of Kabirdas. For a little more about him, see this post.

You are me, and I am You — what is the difference between us?
We are like gold and the bracelet, or water and the waves.

If I did not commit any sins, O Infinite Lord,
how would You have acquired the name, ‘Redeemer of sinners’?

You are my Master, the Inner-knower, Searcher of hearts.
The servant is known by his God, and the Lord and Master is known by His servant.

Grant me the wisdom to worship and adore You with my body.
O Ravi Daas, one who understands that the Lord is equally in all, is very rare.
