E Jiban Khani Tomare Sampite

E jiban khani tomare sampite

Bahubar ami cheyechhi

Paini tomar darashan priya

Byetha duhsaha barechhi


Translation

Many a time I have tried

To offer my life to You.

Alas, I have failed to do so;

Therefore, excruciating pangs

Are torturing my heart.

All in vain I try to please You,

To surrender my existence to You,

To You alone.
