My Lord and Master

(1780)  Tomare bhuliya, thakite pari na

Forgetting Thee,
I can't keep on doing;
My enterprise is You only.
Forsaking its ray, the mote of light-beam,
Can it stay? Pray tell me.

In the water is a fish; in the winter is some snow;
My flow of motion is beneath just Your control.
I was and am inside of Thee; I'll be dissolved
When and if it be Your mercy.

Lord, what You wish to do, You get it done;
But this humble submission, please never ignore.
Hey Ruler of the Universe, unto Your exterior
You cannot send anybody.
