Translation below:
Oh Lord of the whole Universe
Mighty Lord of the whole Universe
All Thy devotees' agonies
All Thy devotees' sorrows
Instantly Thou banisheth
Oh Lord of the whole Universe
He who's immersed in devotion
He reaps the fruits of Thy love
Lord, he reaps the fruits of Thy love
Joy, prosperity and health
Enter the homes of those who pray to thee
Oh Lord of the whole Universe
Thou art Mother and Father
There's none other than Thee, Lord
At Thy feet alone do I hope
You are the supreme soul, you are the indweller
Thou art Perfect, Eternal, Absolute
O Lord of all Creation
Thou art Godly perfection
Omnipotent Master of all
Lord, omnipotent Master of all
My destiny's in Thy Hand
My destiny's in Thy Hand
Supreme Soul of all Creation
Oh Lord of the whole Universe
Thou art an ocean of mercy
Gracious protector of all
Lord, gracious protector of all
I am a simpleton with wrong wishes,
I am Thy servant and Thou art the Master
Grant me Thy divine grace
Oh Lord of the Universe
Thou art beyond all perception
Formless and yet multiform
Lord, formless and yet multiform
Grant me a glimpse of Thyself
Grant me a glimpse of Thyself
Guide me along the path to Thee
Oh Lord of the Universe
Friend of the helpless and feeble
Benevolent saviour of all
Lord, benevolent saviour of all
Offer me Thy hand of compassion
Protect me and bless me,
I seek refuge at Thy feet
Oh Lord of the Universe
Surmounting the earthly desires
Free from the sins of this life
Lord, free from the sins of this life
Undivided faith and devotion
Undivided faith and devotion
In eternal service unto Thee
Oh Lord of the whole Universe
