And so it begins

(1866)  Ami bhalo basini tomare

For You I did not feel fondness;
Me, though, You have cherished.
I've extinguished the lamplight;
In the dark a light You've lit.

Your love, myself it's familiar with,
With my thousand flaws and demerits.
But You are forgiving me, keeping me with Thee,
Every hour, every minute.

Oh God, take me and make me Yours;
Inner and outer, with You make them full.
The sea's drop of water, can it ever be
Flung outside by the ocean?

  1. Oh Lord, please go on condoning my inadvertent flaws as I pursue my quest for You.
