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.
