"Teri Talash" by Amit Kamble (Hindi)


Deer in India - Anuj Bansal/Unsplash

I was invited to like the Facebook page of a church in India. Upon visiting the church's YouTube channel, their featured video was the cover of this popular Hindi worship song. Based on Psalm 42, it has a very simple chord progression and pretty melody with lots of opportunity for harmony and melismas. You can access the lyrics here. Some English-translated lyrics below:


I look for you

I only call you

Please listen to my voice


You are my thirst, You are my passion

You are my last search

Like a deer for water

My heart longs for you


I will stay with You, You will stay with me

This is my heart's prayer

I will glorify You, night and day, in Your temple
