1. What-so-ever is meant by the words "I" and "Mine",

Merciful Lord, at Thy Feet I lay.

2. Lord, myself am no longer mine,

Even now I become solely Thine.

3. The jiva inhabiting this body with the word "I" gives up

all egotism,

And forthwith the pride of being Thine takes possession

of the heart.

4. My all - body, home and followers,

Brothers, friends, wife, son, chattels, way, house -

5. All these now are Thine and myself Thy servant,

I am now a mere occupant in Thy house.

6. Thou art the owner of the house, I obey Thy bidding.

Thy pleasure is now my only endeavour.

7. My virtues and defects of the gross and subtle body

Are now no longer mine, I am redeemed.

8. To Thy will my will is sub-joined;

Bhaktivinode from this day forgets himself.
