(1)
hari he
anya asa nahi jara  taba pada-padma tara
chadibara jogya nahi hoya
taba padasroye natha   kore sei dina-pata
taba pade tahara abhoya
 
(2)
stanya-payi-sisu-jane  mata chade krodha-mane
sisu tabu nahi chade maya
je hetu tahara arae jibana dhoribara
mata bina nahika upaya
 
(3)
e bhaktibinoda koya tumi chado doyamoya
dekhiya amara dosa-gana
a;mi to' chadite nari toma bina nahi pari
kakhana dhorite e jibana
 
(1) Oh my dear Lord Hari! He who spends his time under the shelter of Your lotus feet, oh Lord, becomes completely fearless. Indeed, he has no ability to neglect Your lotus feet for he hasn't a pinch of desire to remain under any other shelter.
 
(2) A mother sometimes neglects her breast-suckling children out of anger but still the children could never give up their mother. This is because such small helpless children are not able to maintain their lives at all without their mother, being totally dependent on her.
 
(3) Similarly, Bhaktivinoda says to You, oh Lord Who is overflowing with compassion, that You may reject me if You like, seeing all of my offenses. But still, I will never be able to abandon You, for I cannot maintain my life under any circumstances without You.
