Prisoner of love

(1499)  Tumi esecho dvar bheungecho

You have come, the gate You have shattered;
Prison's gloom You have illumined.
Tenderly You've smiled, and eyes You've opened;
You've expunged thought's every grimy degradation.

Hey Ever-Unfamiliar Lord, I don't see
How the heart You seized and held captive.
Your light, Your effulgence,
You poured into psyche's darkness...
Melody You've infused with cadence aplenty.

Oh You have bound me with what shackles,
Not with chains of iron but with string of flowers!
Through Your bondage with its sweet vibration,
You have removed the inertia.
