Phanki Diye Cheyechhilam Karte

Phanki diye cheyechhilam karte tomai joy

Prabhu tomar sneha dhara halo apabyay

Andha mora andha hriday duar bandha

Ghor timire nachi pran taranir majhi

Nutan alo sathe madhur amar prate

Abar prabhu dio dekha ei dharanir buke

Daki jena tomai mora nitya sukhe dukhe

Dur karo aj moder praner klanti mithya bhoy

Phanki diye cheyechhilam karte tomai joy


Translation

I wanted to conquer You through deception.

Lord, all Your Affection and Love

I have squandered.

All human beings are blind.

Our heart-doors are closed.

We dance in darkness tenebrous.

O Boatman of my life-boat,

Do come to me with new light

In the golden and sanctified morning.

O Lord, do appear once more before me.

Here on earth may I invoke You once again

Through ever-new sorrows and delight.

Today especially, O Lord,

Drive away all falsehood and fear from me.

Alas, I wanted to conquer You through deception,

By deceiving You.
