Kamalakanta Nieves sings "Only Once"

Last modified March 13, 2006

This is a recording of an original composition by myself….a few months ago I realised that, prior to being accepted as a student of Sri Chinmoy, I could only remember one time when I heard my heart-child crying to God, saying: “God, please save me!”…

And I marveled at the fact that, even though I cried only once, God did come into my life and revealed Himself, erasing at once my doubt and my emptiness, and lighting the flame of aspiration in my heart!

Overwhelmed by a feeling of gratitude, the following song came:

“Only once I cried for You, my Lord Supreme,
Only once.
Only once I cried for You my Lord Supreme,
Only once.
You came to me
Like a mother to her child
With Your Infinity.
Delight, Delight, Delight, Heaven’s Delight!

Only once I cried for You, my Lord Supreme,
Only once.
Only once I cried for You my Lord Supreme,
Only once.
You plucked me from the Ocean of Souls,
Placed me at Your Feet and in Your Heart.
Delight, Delight, Delight, Heaven’s Delight!

Only once I cried for You my Lord Supreme
You came to me!”

-Kamalakanta Nieves

My gratitude to Sri Chinmoy for all that he has done for me. I have an infinite debt of gratitude to Sri Chinmoy.
