Gopinatha

by Bhaktivinoda Thakura
 

1) Gopinatha, mama nivedana suno
 visayi durjana, sada Kama-rata
 Kichu nahi mora guna

2) Gopinatha, amara bharasa tumi
 tomara carane, loinu sarana,
 tomara Kinkora ami

3) Gopinatha, Kemone sodhibe more
 na jani bhakati, Karme jada-mati
 porechi somsara-ghore

4) Gopinatha, sakali tomara maya
 nahi mama bala, jnana sunirmala
 swadhina nahe e Kaya

5) Gopinatha, niyata carane sthana
 mage e pamara, Kandiya Kandiya,
 Korohe Karuna dana

6) Gopinatha, tumi to sakali paro
 durjane tarite, tomara sakati,
 Ke ache papira aro

7) Gopinatha, tumi Krpa-parabara
 jivera Karane, asiya prapance,
 lila Koile subistara

8) Gopinatha, ami ki dose dosi
 asura sakala, pailo carana,
 vinoda Thakilo bosi
 

Gopinatha (translation)

1) O Gopinatha, Lord of the Gopis, please hear my request!
 I am a fallen soul, always addicted to worldly desires, 
 and no good qualities do I possess.

2) O Gopinatha, You are my only hope 
 and therefore I have taken shelter at your lotus feet.
 I am now your eternal servant.

3) O Gopinatha, how will you purify me?
 I do not know what devotion is,
 and my materialistic mind is absorbed in fruitive work.
 I have fallen into this dark and perilous worldly existence.

4) O Gopinatha, everything here is your illusory energy.
  I have no strength or clear and flawless knowledge, 
 and this body of mine is not free from the control of material nature.

5) O Gopinatha, an eternal place at Your divine feet
 is what I beg for, weeping and weeping, 
 please give me the gift of Your mercy.

6) O Gopinatha, You are able to do anything,
 and therefore You have the power to deliver all sinners,
 and who is more of a sinner than myself?

7) O Gopinatha, You are the ocean of mercy.
 Having come into this phenomenal world for the sake of the fallen souls,
 You expand Your divine pastimes.

8) O Gopinatha, what sin has made me so sinful
  that although all the demons attained your lotus feet, 
 Bhaktivinoda has remained here in worldly existence.
