LYRICS:

(1)

hari bolbo āra madana mohana herabo go

ei rūpe vrajera pathe calabo go

 

(2)

jāba go vrajendra pure     haba go gopikāra nūpura

tāńdera caraṇe madhura madhura bājabo go

vipine vinoda khelā    sańgete rākhālera melā

tāńdera caraṇera dhūlā mākhabo go

 

(3)

rādhā-kṛṣṇera rūpa-mādhurī  heraba du’nayana bhari

nikuñjera dvāre dvārī roibo go

vrajavāsī tomarā sabe     ei abhilāṣa purāo ebe

āra kabe śrī-kṛṣṇera bāńśī śunabo go

 

(4)

e deha antima kāle     rākhabo śrī-yamunāra jale

jaya rādhe govinda bale bhāsabo go

kahe narottama dāsa    pūrilo abhilāṣa

āra kabe vraje vāsa korbo go

 

TRANSLATION

1) When will I be able to say “Hari” and see Madana Mohana? For this form, I will walk to Vraja.

 

2) When I enter the holy land of Braja, I will be the ankle-bells of the gopis’ feet. I will make sweet sweet sounds. I will behold the pastimes of the cowherd boys and will spread the dust from their feet and apply it to my body.

 

3) I will behold the vision sweet form of Radha and Krsna in my two eyes. I will remain at the gate of the forest of Vraja. O residents of Vrajabhumi, please fulfill my desire! When will I hear the sweet sound of the flute of Sri Krsna?

 

4) At the last moment of my life, I will place my body in the Yamuna River and float singing “Jaya Radha Govinda.” Narottama Dasa says, “I am unable to fulfill this desire. When will I become a resident of Vraja bhumi?”
