Bandhu tomáy kii balibo
বন্ধু তোমায় কী বলিবো
Abiding Friend, what shall I say to Thee?
This is how Sarkar himself described the meaning of the song—
Oh Lord, what shall I say to You? You have broken my dark slumber, and now I shall move on the path of light. My flower, which was long neglected, You have threaded into Your garland. Those offerings of my mind were soiled with the dust of pettiness. You have graciously taken them on Your lap. I have given away my all, and then only I have received You. Henceforward, I shall move along Your path. Only Your words I will hear. Only Your dictates I will follow. This is the proper path for me.
