LYRICS:

(1)

dārā-putra-nija-deho-kuṭumba-pālane

sarvadā vyākula āmi chinu mane mane

 

(2)

kemone arjibo artha, yaśa kise pābo

kanyā-putra-vivāha kemone sampādibo

 

(3)

ebe ātma-samarpane cintā nāhi ār

tumi nirvāhibe prabhu, saḿsāra tomār

tumi to’ pālibe more nija-dāsa jāni’

tomāra sevāya prabhu boḍo sukha māni

tomāra icchaya prabhu sab kārya hoy

jīva bole,—`kori āmi’, se to’ satya noy

jīva ki korite pare, tumi nā korile?

āśā-mātra jīva kore, tava icchā-phale

niścinta hoiyā āmi sevibo tomāy

gṛhe bhālo-manda ho’le nāhi mora dāy

 

 (8)

bhakativinoda nija-swātantrya tyajiyā

tomāra caraṇa seve’ akińcana hoiyā

 

TRANSLATION

1) Within my heart I have always been anxious for the maintenance of my wife and children, my own body and relatives.

 

2) How will I earn money? How will I obtain fame? How will I arrange the marriages of my sons and daughter?

 

3) Now, through self-surrender, I have been purged of all anxiety. O Lord, surely You will provide for the maintenance of Your household.

 

4) Surely You will preserve me, knowing me to be Your own servant. O Lord, in Your devotional service I feel great happiness.

 

5) All events take place by Your will, O Lord. The deluded soul of this world declares, “I am the doer,” but this is pure folly.

 

6) If You do not act first, then what is a tiny soul actually able to do? By Your will he can only desire to act, and unless You fulfill his desire, he cannot do anything.

 

7) I will serve You free from all anxiety, and at home, if any good or evil should occur, it will not be my responsibility.

 

8) Bhaktivinoda thus gives up his independence and engages in the exclusive service of Your lotus feet with no other interest in life.
