(1)
hari hari! bodo sela marame rahilo
paiya durllabha tanu, sri krsna bhajana vinu,
janma mora viphala hoilo
 
(2)
vrajendra nandana hari, navadvipe avatari,
jagat bhariya prema dilo
mui se pamara mati, visese kathina ati,
tei more karuna nahilo
 
(3)
svarupa sanatana rupa, raghunatha bhatta yuga,
tahate na hoilo mora mati
divya cintamani dhama, vrndavana heno sthana,
sei dhame na koinu vasati
 
(4)
visesa visaye mati, nahilo vaisnave rati,
nirantara kheda uthe mane
narottama dasa kohe, jivara ucita nohe,
sri guru vaisnava seva vine
 
 
(1) O Lord Hari, O Lord Hari, a great javelin has pierced me in the core of the heart.  Having attained this difficult to get human body, I have neglected the worship of Sri Krsna, and in this way my life has become useless.
 
(2) Although Lord Hari, the prince of Vraja, descended to Navadvipa and filled the universe with pure love of God, He was not merciful to me because I was very cruel and sinful at heart.
 
(3) My mind refuses to think of Srila Svarupa Damodara Gosvami, Srila Sanatana Gosvami, Srila Rupa Gosvami, Srila Raghunatha dasa Gosvami, Srila Raghunatha Bhatta Gosvami, andSrila Gopala Bhatta Gosvami.  I decline to make my residence in Vrndavana-dhama, the abode of transcendental cintamani gems.
 
(4) My mind is absorbed in sense-gratification, and I do not take pleasure in the association of Vaisnavas.  For this reason pain and regret arise in my heart.  Narottama dasa says: It is not good to live without serving the spiritual master and Vaisnavas.
