TRANSLATION

Refrain: Our eyes thirst for a vision of Lord Hari.

 

1) They long to see the Lotus-eyed One, grieving for Him day and night.

 

2-3) Wearing a saffron tilaka and a garland of pearls and dwelling in the village of Vrndavana, He gave us His love, and then He casts us aside like a blade of grass, throwing a noose around our necks.

 

4) Nobody knows the pain in anotherís breast, there is laughter in peopleís hearts.

 

5) But Oh Lord of Sura Dasa! Without a vision of You, we would give up our very lives.

 

Remarks/ Extra Information:

At the ISKCON New Jersey temple on Gaura Purnima 2002, an Odissi dancer sang this song. Therefore, I have decided to include this song in this song-book. It was rendered in Raga Kafi in Sitarkhani Tala.
