`ahaḿ mama’-śabda-arthe jāhā kichu hoy
arpiluń tomāra pade, ohe doyā-moy!
`āmāra’ āmi to’ nātha! nā rohinu ār
ekhona hoinu āmi kevala tomār
`āmi’ śabde dehī jīva ahaḿtā chāḍilo
twadīyābhimāna āji hṛdoye paśilo
āmār sarvasva—deho, geho anucar
bhāi, bandhu, dārā, suta, dravya, dwāra, ghar
se saba hoilo tava, āmi hoinu dās
tomāra gṛhete ebe āmi kori bās
tumi gṛha-swāmī, āmi sevaka tomār
tomāra sukhete ceṣṭā ekhona āmār
sthūla-lińga-dehe mora sukṛta duṣkṛta
āra mora nahe, prabhu! āmi to’ niṣkṛta
tomāra icchāya mora icchā miśāilo
bhakativinoda āja āpane bhulilo
(1)-(2) Whatever I am, whatever I possess, I offer at Your lotus feet, O merciful Lord. I no longer belong to myself. Now I am exclusively Yours.
(3) The soul inhabiting this mortal body has given up the false ego attached to the word “I”, and now the eternal, spiritual sense of being Yours has entered his heart.
(4)-(5) All my possessions – body, brothers, friends, and followers, wife, sons, personal belongings, house and home- all of these I give You, for I have become Your servant. Now I dwell inYour house.
(6) You are the Lord of my house, and I Your most obedient servant. Your happiness is my only endeavor now.
(7) Whatever piety or sins were done by me, by mind or deed, are no longer mine, for I am redeemed
(8) My desire has become one with Yours. From this day Bhaktivinoda has no other identity.
