Lord, Have Mercy on Me

Oh, my body is dirty, and my mind is dirty,

And all of my dealings seem to be dirty too,

Shri Hari, beloved, have mercy on me! . . . . . . . . . .


When I look at wealth this one becomes greedy,

And females turn my mind to lust.

Seeing my weaknesses gives birth to anger

With power always comes pride, dear Master,

With power always comes pride!

Where can I wash this body? Where can I wash this mind?

There does not seem to be a proper well or pond!

Shri Hari, beloved, have mercy on me! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .


Millions have tried to find the path to Your feet.

Thus declared all the scriptures.

Guru "Kripalu" You are good company,

You can burn these sins of mine to ash, dear Master,

You can burn these sins of mine to ash!

Oh please clean my body, oh please make my mind clear.

I need to be ready when I meet with You!

Shri Hari, beloved, have mercy on me! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

maarun tana melun, maarun mana melun,

maaro melo chhe vyavahaara re,

Shri Hari! vahaalaa kripaa karo . . . . . . . . .


lakshmi jotaan lobha janme chhe, kaamini jotaan kaam,

aasaktithi krotaan janme chee, shaktithi abhimaan. Prabhuji!

shaktithi abhimaan.

tana kyaan dhoin? mana kyaan dhoin?

thaaya tana chokhun, thaya mana chokhun,

vali aapano thaaya melaapa re,

Shri Hari! vahaalaa kripaa karo . . . . . . . . .
