Rakhte Je Hoy Bahu Loker Man

Rakhte je hoy bahu loker man
Tahar lagi katai ayojan
Tomar dabi nai je kechai nai
Jibane tai tomar nahi thai
Tabu prabhu kangal seje asa
Amar prane sakal byatha nasha
Janina hai ke je apan jan
Rakhte je hoy bahu loker man


I have to please all and sundry.
Therefore, my life is in constant preparation.
O Lord, You never make any demand.
Therefore, I have kept no place for You
In my life.
You come to me in the garb of a beggar.
In silence-light you destroy all my suffering.
Alas, yet I do not know
Who is my real friend.
Since I do not know,
I try to satisfy all and sundry
And, what is worse,
In their own way.
