Elated Heart


When our heart experiences elation,

With it, the speed of our life’s boat get acceleration.

Every omen augurs well for us,

Even dark dreadful shadows reflect a flicker of light for us

Uphill tasks get accomplished with ease,

We are free of malice and in perfect mental peace.

Harsh realities of life can be met with a broad smile,

If someone goes a furlong for us, we run for a mile

We venture to get our goal with our sweat and toil

We carve our path even in slipper soil

We want to share our joys with our brethren,

Pure of heart and with good intentions

O, Almighty God, make elation of heart a contagious one,

So that it spreads from one to ten.
