My friend, my confidant

(525)  Bandhu amar nikata amar

My friend, my confidant,
How will I sing Your song?
You are love and honey-coated hope;
You alone are the breath of my life.

Since the day that I recognized You,
I've understood You're my sole companion.
On that same day, my friend, with Your touch,
You made the gift of new existence.

On that very day with Your gentle hand
On this budding lotus at its inception,
You pulled me into Your effulgence;
You performed on me the muktisnán.[1]
