I knew God well when love flashed before me

by Sultan Bahu

English version by Jamal Elias
Original Language Punjabi

I knew God well when love flashed before me.
It gives me strength by night and day, and shows what lies ahead.
In me are flames, in me is fuel, in me is smoke.
I only found my Beloved, Bahu, when love made me aware.
