Lyrics

Gate of Sweet Nectar
Buddist invocation

Calling out to hungry hearts,
Everywhere through endless time,
You who wander, you who thirst,
I offer you this bodhi mind.

Calling out to hungry spirits,
Everywhere through endless time,
Calling out to hungry hearts,
All the lost and left behind.

Gather round and share this meal;
Your joy and your sorrow I make mine.
