praṇām tomāy ghana-śyām
tomār caraṇa śaraṇa kori
abhoy ei bār ho’bo hari
duḥkha sāgor jābo tori
tori kari tomār nām
āmarā paḍi ghumāy prabhu
tomār nitya jāgaran
kṣane kṣane ghaṭāo ye bhūl
cakṣe moder āvaraṇ
sei āvaraṇ ghucāo hari
dārāo yugāl mūrti dhari
dekhi tomāy nayana bhari
pūrṇa kori manuśkām
Refrain: All obeisances to You, O Ghana-syam!
1) Taking refuge at Your lotus feet, now I will become fearless, O Lord! I will cross the ocean of miseries by the boat of Your Holy Name.
2) O Lord, we have fallen into sleep, while You are ever awake. Every moment we can only make errors, our eyes being covered by illusion.
3) Please remove this covering, my Lord, so I may behold Your form as the Divine Couple, with Sri Radha by Your side. I will gaze at You until my hankering eyes are pacified, thus fulfilling my soul’s desire.
