That dark Dweller in Braj
Is my only refuge.
O my companion,
Worldly comfort is an illusion,
As soon you get it, it goes.
I have chosen the Indestructible for my refuge,
Him whom the snake of death
Will not devour.
My Beloved dwells in my heart,
I have actually seen that Abode of Joy.
Mira's Lord is Hari, the Indestructible.
My Lord, I have taken refuge with Thee,
Thy slave.

A Prayer in praise of the feet of Lord Vishnu by Meerabai

O mind,
Worship the feet of Hari
When Prahlada grasped them
He became Indra
When Dhruva sought refuge in them
He found paradise
In the body of the dwarf
They measured the universe
Their touch saved Ahalya
They tamed Kaliya
They supported Mount Govardhana
When Krishna was cowherd
Mira is his servant –
The raft of unnavigable seas

Mirabai’s devotional Poem – Life in the world is short

Life in the world is short,
Why shoulder an unnecessary load
Of worldly relationships?
Thy parents gave thee birth in the world,
But the Lord ordained thy fate.
Life passes in getting and spending,
No merit is earned by virtuous deeds.
I will sing the praises of Hari
In the company of the holy men,
Nothing else concerns me.
Mira's Lord is the courtly Giridhara

A Poem Dedicated to Lord Krishna by Mirabai

Let me behold Thee in every being,
I am singing and dancing
To have sight of Thee.
I cannot suppress my tears
However much I try.
They flow like streams and drench my clothes.
I wait the whole night to meet Thee
Every sound stirs me within.
My bosom heaves, my eyes ache, my ears burn,
I find solace in these tears
Quenching of my thirst
Joy in thy remembrance
Pleasure in thy Name
Bliss in thy dancing
Happiness in singing Thy praise
Mira's Lord is Giridhar.
She cannot live without Him.
