campaka dāma heri mūrachi rahu mādhaba
locana jharu anurāga
tuyā guṇa-mantara japaye nirantara
bhāle dhani tohāri sohāga
bṛṣabhānu-nandinī japaye rāti dini
bharame nā bolaye āna
lākha lākha dhanī kaha-i madhura bāṇī
swpaane nā pāta-i kāna
puruṣa-ratana baradharaṇi loṭā-ota
ko kahu ārati-ora
rā bali dhā balibala-i nā pāra-i
dhārādhāra bahe lora
gobinda dāsa tuyā caraṇe nibedala
kānuko aichana sambāda
nicaya jānaha tachu duḥkha-khaṇḍaka
kebala tuyā parasāda
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.
This song is sung in Raga Bala.
