White knight

(966)  Aloker ei jharnadharay

In this same streaming light-fountain,
Immaculate, You have come.
I'd borne the filth of degradation;
Catching hand, You've raised me up.

In glad times I've been negligent;
When in trouble, I've called then.
Profit's joys for me I've taken;
Heaps of sins to You I've given.
Upon Your feet I never even gazed,
But at my face You have stared.

I've always thought only of me;
About You, that I do not think.
I've floated on a stream of self-seeking,
Not doing any work that's worthy.
I've taught precepts but never listened;
You've brought me on the path of righteousness.
