hari he
heno dusta karma nai jaha ami kori nai
sahasra sahasra-bara hori
sei saba-karma-phala peye abasara bala
amaya pisiche jantropori
gati nahi dekhi ara kande hari anibara
tomara agrete ebe ami
ja' tomara hoya mane danda deo akincane
tumi mora danda-dhara swami
klesa-bhoga bhagye jata bhoga mora hao tata
kintu eka mama nibedana
je je dasa bhoga ami amake na chado swami
bhaktibinodera prana-dhana
(1) Oh my dear Lord Hari! There are not sinful activities which I have not performed thousands upon thousands of times! And by the fruits of all these sinful actions, I have become robbed of all strength, being helplessly taken for an excruciatingly painful ride on the machine of this material world.
(2) Seeing no other hope for deliverance in sight, I am now continuously crying before You, my Lord. Please punish Your insignificant servant as You see befitting, for You are my Lord and ruling Master.
(3) Whatever difficulty my destiny prescribes for me, I will gladly undergo, but I have just one appeal to make to You. My dear Lord, no matter what condition I must undergo, please never give me up, for You are the only treasure of Bhaktivinoda's life.
