LYRICS:

(1)

campaka dāma heri mūrachi rahu mādhaba

locana jharu anurāga

tuyā guṇa-mantara japaye nirantara

bhāle dhani tohāri sohāga

bṛṣabhānu-nandinī japaye rāti dini

lākha lākha dhanī kaha-i madhura bāṇī

swpaane pāta-i kāna

gobinda dāsa tuyā caraṇe nibedala

kānuko aichana sambāda

nicaya jānaha tachu duḥkha-khaṇḍaka

kebala tuyā parasāda

 

TRANSLATION

1) When He saw Your campaka garland, Krsna was overcome. Tears of love streamed from His eyes. Without stop He chants the mantra of Your glories. My dear beautiful friend, He loves You deeply.

 

2) O daughter of Vrsabhanu, He chants the mantras of Your glories day and night. He does not glorify any other girl. Millions and millions of girls praise Him with sweet words, but even in His dreams Krsna does not love any girl but You.

 

3) He is the jewel of men, the best of lovers. Overcome with love for You, He rolls on the ground. Does He love another girl? He chants, "Ra!" Then He chants, "Dha!" Then He is overcome and He has no power to say anything more. Then flooding streams of tears flow from His eyes.

 

4) Govinda dasa falls at Your feet and makes this request. Please give to Krsna a reply that will show mercy to Him, a reply that will break His sufferings into pieces.
