O Gopinatha!

gopīnāth, mama nivedana śuno
viṣayī durjanasadā kāma-rata,
kichu nāhi mora guṇa

gopīnāthāmāra bharasā tumi
tomāra caraṇeloinu śaraṇa,
tomāra kińkora āmi

gopīnāthkemone śodhibe more
 jāni bhakatikarme jaḍa-mati,
porechi soḿsāra-ghore

gopīnāthsakali tomāra māyā
nāhi mama balajñāna sunirmala,
swādīna nahe e kāyā

gopīnāthniyata caraṇe sthāna
māge e pāmarakāndiyā kāndiyā,
korohe karuṇā dāna

gopīnāthtumi to' sakali pāro
durjane tāritetomāra śakati,
ke āche pāpīra āro

gopīnāthtumi kṛpā-pārābāra
jīvera kāraṇeāsiyā prapañce,
līlā koile subistāra

gopīnāthāmi ki doṣe doṣī
asura sakalapāilo caraṇa,
vinodá thākilo bosi'

1) O Gopinatha, Lord of the gopis, please hear my request. I am a wicked materialist, always addicted to worldly desires, and no good qualities do I possess.

2) O Gopinatha, You are my only hope, and therefore I have taken shelter at Your lotus feet. I am now Your eternal servant.

3) O Gopinatha, how will You purify me? I do not know what devotion is, and my materialistic mind is absorbed in fruitive work. I have fallen into this dark and perilous worldly existence.

4) O Gopinatha, everything here is Your illusory energy. I have no strength or transcendental knowledge, and this body of mine is not independent and free from the control of material nature.

5) O Gopinatha, this sinner, who is weeping and weeping, begs for an eternal place at Your divine feet. Please give him Your mercy.

6) O Gopinatha, You are able to do anything, and therefore You have the power to deliver all sinners. Who is there that is more of a sinner than myself?

7) O Gopinatha, You are the ocean of mercy. Having come into this phenomenal world, You expand Your divine pastimes for the sake of the fallen souls.

8) O Gopinatha, I am so sinful that although all the demons attained Your lotus feet, Bhaktivinoda has remained in worldly existence.
