kemone lobhibe carama śaraṇa
O my heart, how will I take shelter of Śrī Śrī Rādha and Kṛṣṇa’s lotus feet?
cira-dina koriyā o caraṇa āśa
āche he basiyā e adhama dāsa
For many days this lowly servant has yearned to attain Their feet.
he rādhe he kṛṣṇacandra bhakta-praṇa
pāmāre jugala-bhakti koro’ dāna
O Rādhā! O Kṛṣṇacandra! O life of the devotees! To this sinner please give devotion to You both.
bhakti-hīna boli’ nā koro’ upekhā
mūrkha-jane deho’ jāna-su-śikhā
Please don’t say, Ah! He has no devotion. Please don’t abandon me. Please teach this fool what is right.
deho’ adhikāra jugala-bilāse
Please make this servant, this servant now tortured by the thirst for sense pleasures, qualified to serve You in Your pastimes.
kālera sāgore dhāya
gelo je dibasa nā āsibe āra
ebe kṛṣṇa ki upāya
The powerful river of this flickering life runs into the ocean of time. The days that have gone will not come again. O Kṛṣṇa, what will I do?
tumi patita-janera bandhu
jāni he tomāra nātha
tumi to’ koruṇa-jala-sindhu
You are the friend of the fallen. You are an ocean of mercy. O master, I know this very well.
āmi bhāgya-hīna ati arbacīna
nā jāni bhakati-leśa
nija-guṇe nātha koro’ ātmasāta
I am very unfortunate. I am a great fool. I do not know anything about devotional service. O master, please destroy these material sufferings. Please, because You are so kind and virtuous, accept me.
siddha-deha diyā bṛndābana-mājhe
sebāmṛta koro’ dāna
piyāiyā prema matta kori’ more
śuno nija guṇa-gāna
Please give me a spiritual body. In the world of Vṛndāvana please make me drink the nectar of service to You. Please make me drunk with love for You. Please listen as I sing Your glories.
nijukta koro’ āmāya
lalitā sakhīra ajogyā kiṅkorī
binoda dhoriche pāya
Please allow me to serve You in the rāsa-dance circle. Lalitā-sakhī’s unworthy maidservant Bhaktivinoda grasps Your feet.
