(refrain)

jaya jaya prabhu mora ṭhākura haridāsa

ye karilā harināmera mahimā prakāśa

gaurabhakta-gaṇa madhye sarva agragaṇya

yāra guṇa gāi kānde āpane caitanya

sabe gāya jaya jaya jaya haridāsa

nāmera mahimā yeńha karilā prakāśa

 

TRANSLATION

Refrain: Glory, glory to my Prabhu, Thakura Haridasa, who has manifested the greatness of Harinam!

 

1) Amongst all the devotees of Gaura, he is certainly the best. Upon singing his glories, Caitanya Himself weeps.

 

2) Advaita Acarya is the limit of prema for Mahaprabhu, and he knew the greatness of Haridasa.

 

3) The moonlike Nityananda is known as the life [of Haridasa], and the touch of Haridasa's feet grants auspiciousness to the world!

 

4) Hare Krsna, Hare Rama -- who more shall hear? As Haridas departed, life became a burden to bear.

 

5) Haridas was the crown-jewel of the Earth; In his absence, the Earth has lost its gem.

 

6) Say 'Jaya Haridas' and make the hari-dhvani! So said Mahaprabhu and danced himself.

 

7) Everyone sang, Jaya Jaya, Jaya Haridasa, who brought forth the glory of the name!

 

REMARKS/EXTRA INFORMATION:

This is to be sung in Raga Sri.

 

The last three verses are from the Antya Lila Chapter 11 Verses 97 through 99 of the Caitanya Caritamrta.
