(prabhu he!)
emana durmati saṁsāra bhitare
paḍiyā āchhinu āmi
tava nija-jana kona mahājane
pāṭhāiyā dile tumi [1]

O Lord! I am very wicked-minded and have fallen into this material world, but You have sent a great soul, Your associate (to rescue me).

dayā kari more patita dekhiyā
kahila āmāre giyā
ohe dīna-jana śuna bhāla kathā
ullasita ha’be hiyā [2]

Seeing me so fallen and being merciful, he came to me and said, “O humble soul, listen to this wonderful message and your heart will rejoice.

tomāre tārite śrī-kṛṣṇa-chaitanya
navadvīpe avatāra
tomā hena kata dīna-hīna jane
karilena bhava-pāra [3]

“Śrī Kṛṣṇa Chaitanya has appeared in Nabadwīp to deliver you. He has brought many humble souls just like you to the shore of the ocean of material existence.

vedera pratijñā rākhibāra tare
rukma-varṇa vipra-suta
mahāprabhu nāme nadīyā mātāya
saṅge bhāi avadhūta [4]

“To fulfil the prophecies of the Vedas, He has appeared with a golden complexion as a brāhmaṇ’s son bearing the name ‘Mahāprabhu’ and driven all of Nadia mad with divine love in the company of His brother Nityānanda.

nanda suta yini chaitanya gosāñī
nija-nāma kari’ dāna
tārila jagat tumi-o yāiyā
laha nija paritrāṇa [5]

“Śrī Chaitanya, who is Kṛṣṇa Himself, has distributed His own Name and delivered the world. Go also and accept your deliverance.”

se kathā śuniyā āsiyāchhi, nātha!
tomāra charaṇa-tale
bhakati-vinoda kādiyā kādiyā
āpana-kāhinī bale [6]

O Lord, hearing this message, Bhakti Vinod has come to the soles of Your feet. Crying, he tells his story.

(Śrīla Bhakti Vinod Ṭhākur)

(prabhu) ei bār āmāy dayā kara

O Lord, give Your mercy to me this time.

patita pāvan nitāi-gaura ei bār āmāy dayā kara

O Saviours of the fallen Śrī Nitāi and Śrī Gaura, give Your mercy to me this time.

(tomār) śrī charaṇe śaraṇ nilām ei bār āmāy dayā kara

I have taken shelter at Your feet; give me your mercy this time.

tava dāser anudās kari’ ei bār āmāy dayā kara

Make me the servant of Your servant; give me Your mercy this time.

sapārṣada gaurahari ei bār āmāy dayā kara

O Gaurahari with Your associates, give Your mercy to me this time.

sapārṣada gaurahari ei bār āmāy dayā kara

O Gaurahari with Your associates, give your mercy to me this time.

hari he hari he hari he hari he

O Lord!

nitāi gaura hari he hari he hari he

O Nitāi, Gaura, Hari!
