Brightening everybody's psyche

(1926)  Eso kajal rater andhare

Please arrive in the dark of ink-black night,
Having made hearts bright...
With love's matchstick having lit this lamp mine,
Wakening human kindness.

Without You this ignorance will not get lifted;
Excluding You, humanity will not be awakened.
For cosmic weal, in everybody's meditation do appear
As the sterling tier of worldliness.

I have wanted You in the darkness of a prison,
Throughout life Yourself I have sought;
Your smile, sweet and bright, heaven's nectar heaped,
It will dispel all sorts of gloominess.
