Kabe Habe Bolo


(by Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura, Bengali, 19th century)
Kabe ha’be bolo se-dina amar
Aparadha ghuci, suddha name ruci
Krpa- bale ha’be hrdoye sancar
Trnadhika hina, kabe nije mani
Sahisnuta- guna hrdoyete ani
Sakale manada, apani amani
Ho’ ye aswadibo nama- rasa- sar
Dhana jana ara, kobita- sundari
Bolibo na cahi deho- sukha- kari
Janme- janme dao, ohe gaurahari
Ahaituki bhakti carane tomar
Korite sri-krsna- nama uccarana
Pulakita deho gadgada bacana
Baibarnya- bepathu ha’be sanghatana
Nirantara netre ba’be asru-dhar

Kabe Habe Bolo/ synapsis
“When will that day be mine?
When will my offenses end
And the power of divine grace
Infuse my heart with a taste
For the pure holy name?”…
