1. Lord, this is my prayer at Thy Feet;

The twigs of Thy Holy Feet

My desert mind not seeking

Was enamoured at stony worldliness.

2. The strength to rise again

I am unable to attain.

Mourning I pass my days.

Lord of the humble

Thou art called

Thy Feet I beseech.

3. Baseness such as mine

Nowhere else is to be found

Give me Thy grace.

In the company of Thy own,

In the pleasures of Thy talk,

I shall give up all evil.

4. In Thy abode,

Singing Thy Name,

To spend night and day is my hope.

For the shade of Thy Feet,

Most deliciously cool,

Prays Thy servant, Bhaktivinode.
