prabhu he! ei bar koroho karuna
jugala carana dekhi, saphala koribo ankhi,
ei mora monera kamana
nija pada seva diba, nahi more upekhiba,
duhun pahun karuna sagar
duhun vinu nahi jano, ei boro bhagya mano
mui boro patita pamar
lalita adesa paiya, carana sevibo jaiya
priya sakhi sange hoy mone
duhun data siromani, ati dina more jani,
nikate carana dibe dane
pabo radha-krsna pa, ghucibo monera gha,
dure jabe e sab biphal
narottama dase koy, ei vancha siddhi hoy,
deho prana sakala saphal
(1) The sight of the lotus feet of the Divine Couple will be the crowning success of my eyes. My heart and mind yearn to attain this sight. O Lord, please be merciful and grant this sight to me.
(2) Please grant me the service of Your lotus feet. Do not neglect me, for You, my two Lords, are like two oceans filled with compassion. I know that You are full of all transcendental glory and opulence, and I do not know anyone except You. I am very fallen and sinful. Please be merciful to me.
(3) By Your mercy I will attain the association of the gopis. By Your mercy I will become Lalita's maidservant, to be ordered about by her. By Your mercy I will attain the service of Yourlotus feet. I know that You are both the crest-jewels among all wealthy philanthropists, and You know that I am the poorest of the poor. Please, therefore, give me the charity of Yourlotus feet.
(4) By Your mercy I will attain Your lotus feet. By Your mercy all the painful wounds in my mind and heart will heal. By Your mercy my lack of success will go far away. Narottama dasasays: By Your mercy all my desires will be fulfilled, and this body and life will at last become fruitful.
