Kata Dure Prabhu Kata Dure

Kata dure prabhu kata dure

Klanta hayechi dure ghure

Janina tomar pabo ki na dekha

Kothai tomar sri charan rekha

Kata dure prabhu kata dure

Tomar banshir shubha abahan

Ghuchak amar sakal bandhan


Translation

O Lord, where are You,

How far are you?

I have covered a very long distance.

I have grown weary.

I know not if ever I shall capture

Your Vision-Light.

I know not if ever I shall be blessed

By Your Compassion-Feet.

O Lord, where are You,

How far are You?

Your Flute of Light

Shall destroy all my bondage-night.

I know, I know.
