O Nembutsu - Namo Amida Bu

Enjoy the melody while sing through the song.


O! Nembutsu!
(Sung to the melody of “Amazing Grace”)
[Traditional, Lyrics ©2003 by José M. Tirado]

O! Nembutsu!
The Name that calls
Wells up inside of me.
I call that Name
It calls me too,
Namo-Amida-Bu!

Unhindered Light...
Infinite Life...
Amida surrounds me.
This little self, 
This little me,
No greater Love than this.

How warm your Light
Bright´ning my heart,
How warm your Vow 
Of Life!
Your promise filled,
Yes, verily,
And taken just for me!

O Primal Vow
The First Promise,
Whose power takes me home!
To that Pure Land
From which I can
Be wakened and released.

Bright Light of Life
Of Purity,
Light shining on us all:
The young or old,
The rich or poor,
All taken, as we are....

O! Nembutsu!
The Name that calls
Wells up inside of me.
I call that Name
It calls me too,
Namo-Amida-Bu!
