O servant, where dost thou seek Me?
Lo! I am beside thee.

I am neither in temple nor in mosque:
I am neither in Kaaba nor in Kailash:

Neither am I in rites and ceremonies,
nor in Yoga and renunciation.

If thou art a true seeker, thou shalt at
once see Me: thou shalt meet Me
in a moment of time.

Kabir says, "O Sadhu! God is the
breath of all breath."

Note: Born in Benares around 1440 to Muslim parents, Kabir became a disciple of Ramananda, a Hindu ascetic. His poetry depicts the influence of both religions on him. He was a weaver by profession, but in the eyes of his followers he was both, a Sufi and a Brahman saint. The poem above was taken from, "Songs of Kabir" translated from the Hindi by Rabindranath Tagore.
