Oh please do take me

(1900)  Andhar paravarer kheya

Passage Boat For The Ebon Sea,
Seated, the helpless You ferry.
Those gloom-filled and darkness-ringed,
All of them You lift up laughing.

Bigotry You don't abide;
In vanity You don't reside.
A lamp You light; sable You cast aside,
Every sin eradicating.

To make Your acquaintance, great is the hardship;
Even after finding near, grasping does not happen.
At a mental niche having been struck by a glimpse,
Still You lie hidden from the one rejoicing.
