hari he
maya-baddha jata ksana thake to' jibera mana
joda majhe kore bicarana
parabyoma jnana-moya tahe taba sthiti hoya
mana nahi paya darasana
bhakti-krpa-khargaghate  joda-bandha cheda ta'te
jaya mana prakrtira para
tomara sundara rupa here' taba aparupa
joda-bastu koroye dhik-kara
ananta bibhuti jańra  jini doya parabara
sei prabhu jibera iswara
e bhaktibinoda dina sada suddha-bhakti-hina
suddha-bhakti mage nirantara
(1) Oh my dear Lord Hari! So long as the minds of the jivas are conditioned by maya, they simply wander about and loiter within the world of dead matter. However, You are permanently situated in the spiritual skies of Vaikuntha and Goloka, which the material mind has no capacity for perceiving at all.
(2) By the causeless mercy of the sharp sword of pure devotional service, all bondage to matter is severed, and the mind can then travel far beyond the dull material energy. Then, upon beholding Your wonderfully beautiful form, one has no other choice but to condemn all inferior things which are simply made of matter.
(3) Thus, by devotion one is enabled to see the Supreme Lord Who is the Master of all souls, Who possesses unlimited transcendental opulences, and Who is an ocean of compassion. This most fallen Bhaktivinoda, who is always bereft of pure devotional service, now begs ceaselessly for this type of staunch, unalloyed devotion.
