(refrain)

nahiń aiso janama bārambāra

kyā jānu kachu punya pragaṭe

mānasā avātara

baḍhata pala pala ghaṭaṭa china china

calata na lāgi bāra

biracha ke jyoń pāńta tūṭe

lāge nahiń puni dāra

bhavasāgara ati jaur kahiye

vīṣama okhi dhāra

sūratanara bāńdhe beḍā

begi utāre pāra

sādhu santa te mahantā

calata karata pukāra

dāsī mīrā lāla giridhara

jīvana dina cāra

 

TRANSLATION

(Refrain): Gift of human life is not best owed upon again and again. I know not whether some of my good deeds cropped up in me.

 

1) With every moment growing up, the life span reduces. Life, like leaves fallen down once can not be put back.

 

2) The world, an ocean of nescience, sorrows sufferings and desires takes you to the hell. One can overcome this ocean with a boat of Your Name, O Lord Krsna.

 

3) All sages, saints, and devotees humbly call Your holy name for Your help! Your maidservant, Mira Bai, calls to You, O my Sweet Giridhara! Please help me cross over this hellish world, as the duration of this world is only four days from childhood to youth to adult and old age.
