jo tum toro piyā maiń nā hī torūṇ re
toso prīta tore kṛṣṇa kauna sańga jorūṇ re
tum bhae taruvara maiń bhaī pańkhiyā
tum bhae sarovara maiń bhaī machiyā
tum bhae girivara maiń bhaī cārā
tum bhaye candā maiń bhaī cakorā
tum bhae motī prabhu ham bhaye dhāgā
tum bhae sonā ham bhaye suhāgā
mīrā ke prabhu bṛja ke bāsī
tuma mere ṭhākura maiń terī dāsī
Refrain: Even though You have broken this bond, I will not break this bond. If I break my bond of love to You, Krsna, who else can I form this bond with?
1) You are the great tree and I am the bird. You are the lake and I am the fish. You are the mountain and I am the stream. You are the moon and I am the cakora bird that stares at the moon.
2) You are the pearl and I am the thread. You are the gold and I am the benefit. Mira’s Lord is a resident of Vraja. You are my Lord and I am Your maidservant.
This song was features in three films: Jhanak Jhanak Payal Baje (1957), Meera (1979), and Silsila (1981).
Mira Bai was inspired by Rai Dasa’s song “Jo Tum Toro Ram.”
