The Earth was green and abundant
But very quiet, very sad;
Then by the urge of the devotees
The subterranean rocks and fires
Began to rumble, then to roar
The Holy Names of God;
The whole Earth sang like a bell
And was happy at last:
Pink and silver flowers sprouted
On every tree, every bush;
Devotees in iridescent golden robes
Danced on hillsides, chanting loudly,
And in temples incense burned
And sweet fruits were offered
To graceful Radha Krishna deities.
That was the power of The Name!
