I  N front lies the ocean of peace.
Launch the boat, Helmsman.
You will be the comrade ever,
Take O take him in your lap.
In the path of the Infinite
will shine the Dhruva-tãrã.
Giver of freedom, your forgiveness,
    your mercy
will be wealth inexhaustible
in the eternal journey.
May the mortal bonds perish,
May the vast universe take him in its arms,
And may he know in his fearless heart
The Great Unknown.

This translation is by Amiya Chakrabarty. Though published postumously in Sesh Lekha, this song was originally composed on December 3, 1939. It was the Poet's wish that it should be sung after his death and only then. It was accordingly sung at the memorial service held at Santiniketan Mandir on the evening of August 7, 1941.
  -- Notes, Poems

[ Dhruva-Tara= the bright Pole-star. The Sanskrit word Dhruva carries the significance of steadfastness and unfailing guidance.]

Poems: a collection of one hundred and thirty poems, all but fifteen of which have been translated by the Poet himself. Edited by Krishna Kripalani, Amiya Chakrabarty and others.

    --Rabindranath Tagore, Poems, Visva-Bharati, 1942
