Let only that little be left of me

Language: English after the Bangla (Bengali)

Let only that little be left of me 
whereby I may name thee my all.

Let only that little be left of my will 
whereby I may feel thee 
on every side, and come to thee in everything, 
and offer to thee my love every moment.

Let only that little be left of me 
whereby I may never hide thee.

Let only that little of my fetters be left 
whereby I am bound with thy will, 
and thy purpose is carried out in my life - 
and that is the fetter of thy love.

Fasse qu'il reste un peu de moi

Language: French (Français) after the English

Fasse qu'il reste un peu de moi
par lequel je puisse te nommer mon tout.

Fasse qu'il reste un peu de ma volonté
par laquelle je puisse te sentir
de tous côtés, et venir à toi en chaque chose,
et t'offrir mon amour à chaque instant.

Fasse qu'il reste un peu de moi
par lequel je ne puisse jamais te dissimuler.

Fasse qu'il reste un peu de la chaîne
par laquelle je suis attaché à ta volonté,
et par laquelle ton intention se réalise dans ma vie,
et cela est la chaîne de ton amour.
