Jadi Ekti Bindhu Bhakti Dite Prane

Jadi ekti bindu bhakti dite prane
Shara jiban bhese jetam tomar tane tane
Dilena prem bhakti bhalobasa
Shudhu ache duranta
Pratyasha achi shudhu duhat pete nite
Chahena pran kakeo kichu dite
Emane laja diona diona ar prane
Bishwa bhubana purna karo tomar dane


Lord Supreme,
If You had given me
Even an iota of devotion,
Then with that devotion
I would have run toward You.
Alas, you have not given me
Love and devotion.
You have given me only
The desire to expect everything from You.
I stand always before You
With two empty hands.
I never give anything to anyone;
I only want everything from everyone.
Let me not be embarrassed any more;
Let me follow You.
Let me also become like You —
The magnanimity of Your divine Heart.
