hari tum haro jana ki pīr
draupadī kī lāj rākhī
tum baḍhayo cīr
bhakta kārana rūpa narahari
dharyo āp śarīr
hiraṇyakaśyapa mār līnho
dharyo nāhina dhīr
būḍate gaja rāja rākhyo
kiyo bāhar nīr
dāsi mīrā lāl giradhar
duḥkha jahāń tahāń pīr
Refrain: Oh Hari! Please remove the sufferings of humanity.
1) You protected the honor of Draupadi by increasing the length of her cloth.
2-3) For the sake of Your devotee, You assumed the form of Nrsimhadeva. You killed Hiranyakasipu with Your fierce form.
4) You immobilized the alligator that endangered the feet of the elephant, Gajendra.
5) Oh darling Giridhara! I am only Your maidservant, Mira. Here and there, there is only suffering and pain. Therefore, Oh Hari! Please remove the sufferings of humanity.
This song can either be sung in Raga Purvi in bhajani tala or Raga Adana in tivra tala.
