(from Saranagati)


kripa-bindu diya, koro’ ei dase,
trinapekha ati hina
sakala sahane, bala diya koro’,
nija-mane spriha-hina


sakale sammana korite sakati,
deho’ natha! jathajatha
tabe to’ gaibo, hari-nama-sukhe,
aparadha ha ’be hata


kabe heno kripa, labhiya e jana,
kritartha hoibe, natha!
sakti-buddhi-hina, ami ati dina,
koro’ more atma-satha


jogyata-vicare, kichu nahi pai,
tomara karuna—sara
karuna na hoile, kandiya kandiya,
prana na rakhibo ara

Translation :

1) Gurudeva, give to this servant just one drop of mercy. I am lower than a blade of grass. Give me all he1p.
Give me strength. Let me be as you are, without desires or aspirations.

2) I offer you all respects, for thus I may have the energy to know you correctly. Then, by chanting the holy
name in great ecstasy, all my offenses will cease.

3) O Lord and Master! When will such mercy fall to this one who is weak and devoid of intelligence? Allow me
to be with you.

4) If you examine me, you will find no qualities. Your mercy is all that I am made of. If you are not merciful
unto me, I can only weep, and I will not be able to maintain my life.
