At long last

(346)  Prabhu tumi elei jakhan

Lord, only now You came again;
Why did You make so much delay?
Watching the path on which You arrive,
For me, many ages went by.

When You know how to love,
Why do You make a playful sport?
With all my heart I long for Thee,
To receive the ferry of Your feet.[1]

In hope of You day and night,
An ear to the ground was I.
After dangling hope and despair,
At long last, You graciously came.

  1. As Krśńa says in the Bhagavad Giitá:
    Daevii hyeśá guńamayii mama máyá duratyayá;
    Mámeva ye prapadyante máyámetáḿ taranti te.

    [This máyá of mine is of the nature of three principles, and is almost insurmountable. Only those who take refuge in me can overcome this máyá.]
