TRANSLATION:

1-2) Whatever I am, whatever I possess, I offer at Your lotus feet, O merciful Lord. I no longer belong to myself. Now I am exclusively Yours.

 

3) The soul inhabiting this mortal body has given up the false ego attached to the word “I”, and now the eternal, spiritual sense of being Yours has entered his heart.

 

4-5) All my possessions - body, brothers, friends, and followers, wife, sons, personal belongings, house and home- all of these I give You, for I have become Your servant. Now I dwell in Your house.

 

6) You are the Lord of my house, and I Your most obedient servant. Your happiness is my only endeavor now.

 

7) Whatever piety or sins were done by me, by mind or deed, are no longer mine, for I am redeemed

 

8) My desire has become one with Yours. From this day Bhaktivinoda has no other identity.
