TRANSLATION

Refrain: Please fulfill the desires of my impatient eyes to see You, O Syama! O Gopala! O Giridhari Lal!

 

1) I have offered my mind and body to Your lotus feet. Please accept my humble prayers and offerings and please fulfill my humble request that my love stays with You birth and death.

 

2) Being separated from You, I sit and weep each morning and for Your sake, I will give up this body. Please stay in my heart, O Krsna and meet my desire to meet You. You are the love of Mira Bai, who is constantly waiting and waiting for You all the time.
