Jiv Jago

by Bhaktivinoda Thakura
 

 Jiv jago, jiv jago, gauracanda bole
 kota nidra jao maya- pisacira kole

 bhajibo boliya ese samsara- bhitare
 bhuliya rohile tumi avidyara bhare

 tomare loite ami hoinu avatara
 ami bina bandhu ara ke ache tomara

 enechi ausadhi maya nasibaro lagi
 hari- nama maha- mantra
 lao tumi magi

 bjhaktivinoda prabhu- carane pariya
 sei hari-nama- mantra loilo magiya
 

JIV JAGO (translation)

 Lord Gauranga is calling, "Wake up, sleeping souls!
 How long will you sleep in the lap of the witch called  Maya?

 You were born in this world to worship the Lord
 but you have forgotten this and have become lost in ignorance.

 I have descended just to save you; 
 other than myself you have no true friend in this world.

 I have brought the medicine that will wipe out the disease of illusion,
 the Maha Mantra of the Holy Names; so chant these Names right away.

 Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakur says, "I fall at the Lord's feet, 
 begging Him to give me the Maha Mantra."
