hari hari kabe mora ho’be heno dina
bimala baiṣṇabe rati upajibe
bāsanā hoibe khīna
O Lord Kṛṣṇa! O Lord Kṛṣṇa! When will I feel affection for the pure Vaiṣṇavas? When will my material desires perish? When will that day be?
antara-bahire sama byabahāra
amānī mānada ho’bo
satata majiyā ro’bo
When will I be honest and sincere, the same within and without? When will I be humble and respectful to others? When will I be always rapt in remembering Kṛṣṇa and glorifying Kṛṣṇa in saṅkīrtana?
e dehera kriyā abhyāse koribo
jībana jāpana lāgi’
śrī-kṛṣṇa-bhajane anukūla jāhā
tāhe ho’bo anurāgī
When will perform material duties only to maintain my body? When will I be attracted to what is favorable for devotional service to Lord Kṛṣṇa?
bhajanera jāhā pratikūla tāhā
bhajite bhajite samaya āsile
e deho chāriyā dibo
When will I firmly renounce all that is unfavorable for devotional service? When, as I am rapt in worshiping Lord Kṛṣṇa, will the time come for me to leave this body?
bhakatibinoda ei āśā kori’
prabhu-kṛpā lāgi’ byākula antare
sadā kānde saṅgopane
Desiring in this way, living in Godruma Forest, and his heart yearning to attain the Lord’s mercy, Bhaktivinoda weeps in a secluded place.
