Essence of everything

(1610)  Maner gahane tumi ke go ele

At mind's nook, oh Who are You that came in;
Myself You engrossed and enraptured.
Instantly, getting rid of all my dirt,
You took me and made me Yours.

At no time was I worthy of Your grace;
I never did any work to Your taste.
Still You came in person and granted embrace;
Love unmerited You did rain.

To me You are like fragrance in the flower;
Inside the lamp of life, You're the tongue of fire.
Without You I don't exist, nor anything other;
At my core You spoke the essential words.
