Theme: Devotion

Judge Me

You judge me with your own hand
To your courtroom I have brought everything
I did all day long.
See if I worshipped false gods
Or practiced false creeds.
In a sinful mind
Did I do anyone any wrong?
In my greed did I hurt someone?
In fear did I keep myself away
From what is right?
Even for a moment
Seeing others suffer
Did I feel pleased?
If I have destroyed myself
Staining your gift, this my life
Then judge me, punish me with your own hand.

Translation of the devotional song – Amar bichar tumi karo tabo apan kare – by Rabindranath Tagore. The original with its swaralipi or notation is at http://www.rabindra-rachanabali.nltr.org/node/3913.
