Amar Bolite Prabhu

(1)

`amara’ bolite prabhu! are kichu nai

tumi-i amara matra pita-bandhu-bhai

 

(2)

bandhu, dara, suta, suta—tava dasi das

sei to’ sambandhe sabe amara prayas

 

(3)

dhana, jana, grha, dara `tomara’ boliya

rakha kori ami matro sevaka hoiya

 

(4)

tomara karyera tore uparjibo dhan

tomara saḿsare-vyaya koribo vahan

 

(5)

bhalo-manda nahi jani seva matro kori

tomara saḿsare ami visaya-prahari

 

(6)

tomara icchaya mora indriya-calana

sravana, darsana, ghrana, bhojana-vasana

 

(7)

nija-sukha lagi’ kichu nahi kori ar

bhakativinoda bole, tava sukha-sar

 

 

(1) Nothing remains “mine”. Father, friend, brother — You are even these to me.

 

(2) Those whom I called friends, wife, sons, and daughters are all Your servants and maidservants. Whatever care I take for them is only as it relates to You.

 

(3) If I continue to maintain my wealth, family members, home, and wife, it is because they are Yours. I am a mere servant.

 

(4) For Your service I will earn money and bear the expense of Your household.

 

(5)  I know neither good nor bad. I merely serve. I am but a watchman who guards the properties in Your household.

 

(6) The exercising of my senses — hearing, seeing, smelling, tasting, touching — is done according to Your desire.

 

(7) I no longer do anything for my own pleasure. Bhakativinoda says, “Your happiness is the essence of everything”.
