Song 6

 

[Chota-Dashakushi-Lopha]

 

(1)

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.

 

(2)

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!

 

(3)

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?

 

(4)

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?

 

(5)

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?

 

(6)

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?

 

(7)

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?”
