Text 1

gopīnātha mama nibedana śuno
biṣayī durjana sadā kāma-rata
kichu nāhi mora guṇa

O Gopīnātha, please hear my confession. I am a materialist. I am a sinner. I am always lusty. I have no virtues.

Text 2

gopīnātha āmāra bharasā tumi
tomāra caraṇe loinu śaraṇa
tomāra kiṅkora āmi

O Gopīnātha, I have faith in You. I take shelter of Your feet. I am Your servant.

Text 3

gopīnātha kemone śodhibe more
nā jāni bhakati karme joḍa-mati
poḍechi soṁsāra-ghore

O Gopīnātha, how will You purify me? I do not understand devotional service. I think always of material things. Because of my own actions I have fallen into this horrible world.

Text 4

gopīnātha sakali tomāra māyā
nāhi mama bala jñāna su-nirmala
swādhīna nāhe e kāyā

O Gopīnātha, everything here is Your Māyā. I have no power, knowledge, or purity. I am not independent.

Text 5

gopīnātha niyata caraṇe sthāna
māge e pāmora kāndiyā kāndiyā
korohe koruṇā dāna

O Gopīnātha, weeping and weeping, this sinner begs for an eternal place at Your feet. Please give him a gift of Your mercy.

Text 6

gopīnātha tumi to’ sakali pāra
durjane tarite tomāra śakati
ke āche pāpīra āra

O Gopīnātha, You have all power. You have the power to deliver any sinner. Who is more sinful than me?

Text 7

gopīnātha tumi kṛpā pārābāra
jībera kāraṇe āsiyā prapace
līlā koile su-bistāra

O Gopīnātha, You are an ocean of mercy. For the conditioned souls’ sake You come to this world and enjoy many pastimes.

Text 8

gopīnātha āmi ki doṣe doṣī
asura sakala pāilo caraṇa
binoda thākilo bāsi’

O Gopīnātha, I am the sinner of sinners. All the demons have already attained Your feet. Only Bhaktivinoda was left behind.
