dharma-pathe thāki’ koro jīvana jāpana, bhāi
hari-nām koro sadā (ore o bhāi) hari vinā bandhu nāi
je kono vyavasā dhori’, jīvana nirvāha kori’,
bolo mukhe hari hari, ei mātra bhikṣā cāi
gaurāńga-caraṇe majo, anya abhilāṣa-tyajo,
brajendra-nandane bhajo, tabe boḍo sukha pāi
āmi cāńda-bāul-dās, kori tava kṛpā āśa,
jānāiyā abhilāṣa, nityānanda-ājñā gāi
1) O my dear brothers! Just pass your lives by adhering to the proper path of religiosity. Constantly chant Hari-nama, O brothers, for other than Lord Hari you have no friend.
2) Accepting whatever livelihood that suits you, just live your life honestly. Fill your mouths with the constant chanting of “Hari! Hari!” This is the only alms I beg of you!
3) Remain absorbed in the lotus feet of Lord Gauranga, renounce all other ambitions, and worship Vrajendra-Nandan. If you would do this much, then I will experience great pleasure.
4) I am Cand Baul Das, and I wish only to receive your mercy. I have informed you of my desires, for I sing as I have been personally ordered by Lord Nityananda.
