Song 6





aparadha-phale mama,  citta bhelo vajra-sama,

tuwa name na labhe vikar

hatash hoiye, hari,  tava nam ucca kori’,

boro duhkhe daki bar bar


1) O Lord Hari, as a result of my offenses incurred in previous lifetimes, my heart has become hard as a thunderbolt, and feels no change upon chanting Your holy name. Now in utter hopelessness, O Lord Hari, I loudly sing Your name, and in great distress I call out to You again and again.



dina doyamoy karuna-nidan

bhava-bindhu dei rakhoha paran


2) O Lord who is compassionate towards the fallen souls! O origin of all mercy! Please give to me a drop of divine ecstasy and thereby save my life!



kabe tuwa nama-uccarane mor

nayane jharabo dara dara lor


3) When will an incessant stream of tears flow dripping and dripping from my eyes at the articulation of Your holy name?



gad-gada-swara kanthe upajabo

mukhe bola adha adha bahirabo


4) When will a faltering voice choked with emotion arise in my throat, and when will words garbled due to ecstasy come from my mouth?



pulake bharabo sharira hamara

sweda-kampa-stambha habe bara bara


5) When will my body be filled with ecstatic rapture, and when will there be perspiration, trembling, and a stunned sensation again and again?



vivarna-sharire haraobun jnana

nama-samashraye dharobun paran


6) When, out of divine ecstasy, will all consciousness be lost in my pale and discolored body? And when will I hold onto my very life under the shelter of Your holy name?



milabo hamara kiye aiche din

ro-owe bhaktivinoda mati hin


7) This weeping Bhaktivinoda, who is devoid of all good intelligence, sobs, “O Lord, how will such a day ever be mine?”
