1. (Lord of my life) How tell Thee the story of my shame.
There is no sin
That I did not commit
Thousands of times and more, O Lord.
2. The fruit of those transgressions
Weighs me down in this life, -
Who is now to blame ?
At the time knowing well,
Deliberately I refused to consider the end, -
Yet now I want to be saved.
3. According to the offence
Punishment Thou wilt award,
And I shall be put into the bondage of this world:
Even so, through the cycle of those births,
In the company of Thy devotees,
May my mind ever repose at Thy feet.
4. This wise, cunning, desire of mine
I lay at Thy Feet;
The pride of my heart is gone;
Kindest to the humble,
Thy un-alloyed Mercy
Is now Bhaktivinode's only hope.
