Song 2

Text 1

āmi to’ durjana ati sadā durācāra
koṭi koṭi janme mora nāhiko uddhāra

I am an evil person. My actions are always sins. Even after millions and millions of births I will not be delivered.

Text 2

e heno doyālu keba e jagate āche
e mata pāmare uddhāriyā la’be kāche

Who in this world is so merciful that he will deliver this sinner and give him shelter?

Text 3

śuniyāchi śrī-caitanya patita-pabana
ananta-pātakī jane korila mocana

I heard that Śrī Caitanya, the purifier of the fallen, delivered numberless sinners.

Text 4

e mata doyāra sindhu kṛpā bitāriyā
kabe uddhāribe more śrī-caraṇa diyā

He is like an ocean of mercy. When will He mercifully give me shelter at His feet and deliver me?

Text 5

ei bāra bujhā jā’be koruṇā tomāra
jadi e pāmara-jane koribe uddhāra

If You deliver this sinner I will know that You are truly merciful.

Text 6

karma nāi jñāna nāi kṛṣṇa-bhakti nāi
tabe bolo ki-rūpe o śrī-caraṇa pāi

I have no pious deeds, no knowledge, and no devotion to Lord Kṛṣṇa. How will I attain Your feet? Please tell me.

Text 7

bharasā āmāra mātra koruṇa tomāra
ahaitukī se koruṇā bedera bicāra

Your mercy is my only hope. The Vedas say Your mercy is causeless.

Text 8

tumi to’ pabitra-pada āmi durāśoya
kemone tomāra pade pāibo āśroya

You are the abode of purity. I am a sinner. How will I find shelter at Your feet?

Text 9

kāndiyā kāndiyā bole’ e patita chāra
patita-pābana nāma prasiddha tomāraWeeping and weeping, this fallen sinner, a person worthless like a pile of ashes, says, O Lord, You are famous as patita-pāvana (the purifier of the fallen)!”
