English Bhajan no. 3133 by Satguru Devendra Ghia - Kaka
Oh, God! Thou art mine, search you difficult I find
Traces of desire and thought, difficult to leave behind
Prostrating before you I do, what I should not do
Keep moving my mind and thoughts along too
From peak of desire, see ocean of desire around,
I am so much so deep in it, unnecessary feel proud
Know not what I do, still doing everything
Still I feel in me, I am lacking something
Wandering and wandering, my mind I wander
Busy and busy so much, get no time to ponder

Explanation in English
In this English hymn, He informs us why we are unable to realize God despite our efforts -
I accept and acknowledge God and I know that I need to reach Him
We know that we have to give up our materialistic desires and worldly thoughts but no matter how much we do so, we are still unable to give up everything
Even though I surrender to God, I continue to do whatever I think I should do, which may not even be what He wishes for me
I keep thinking of doing this and doing that such that there seems to be no end in sight as I will fulfill one desire, then wish for another desire which may be fulfilled and then move on to the next desire
I wrongly make myself believe that I am truly achieving something by doing everything and so continue to run after this only
Despite all the things even rightly happening and everything getting fulfilled, I still do not feel satisfied and happy
So I continue the same cycle over and over, not realizing why I am not able to reach God
This shows that material things will never give us lasting satisfaction no matter what. We want to achieve God but only on our own terms and while having all our pleasurable objects on hand with us also. We do not realize or understand what God truly is. Only when we firmly decide that I want to only want God and nothing else whatsoever, will I start leaving all the worldly things behind and be on the path to realize God

He has written about 10,000 hymns which cover various aspects of spirituality, such as devotion, inner knowledge, truth, meditation, right action and right living. Most of the Bhajans are in Gujarati, but there is also a treasure trove of Bhajans in English, Hindi and Marathi languages.
