LYRICS:

(1)

mora prabhu madana gopāla! govinda! gopinātha!

dayā koro mui adhamera

saḿsāra sāgara mājhe, paḍiyā raiyāchi nātha,

kṛpā ḍore bāndhi loho more

 

(2)

adhama caṇḍāla āmi, dayāra ṭhākura tumi,

śuniyāchi vaiṣṇavera mukhe

e boḍo bharasā mane, loiyā phelo vṛndāvane,

vaḿśī-vaṭa yeno dekhi sukhe

 

(3)

kṛpā kori āguguri, loho more keśe dhari,

śrī yamunā deho pada-chāyā

aneka dinera āśa, nahe yeno nairāśa

dayā koro koriho māyā

 

(4)

anitya e deho dhari, āpana āpana kori,

pāche pāche śamanera bhaya

narottama dāsa bhaṇe, prāṇa kānde rātri dine,

pāche vraja prāpti nāhi hoy

 

TRANSLATION

1) O my Lord Madana Gopala! Govinda! Gopinatha! Be kind to this fallen soul! O Lord, I have fallen in the ocean of material life! Please tie me up with the rope of Your grace and take me along!

 

2) I am a fallen dog-eater, while You are the merciful Lord - so I have heard from the mouths of the Vaisnavas. I greatly hope that You will take me to Vrndavana, so that I can blissfully see Vamsi-vata.

 

3) Please take me forwards by pulling me by the hair. Oh Sri Yamuna! Give me the shade of your lotusfeet! For many days I have yearned for this - let me not be disappointed! Please do not play any tricks on me!

 

4) It is not certain when this temporary body will perish and bodily conscious people just think in terms of 'mine, mine'. Thus they are always afraid of death. Narottama dasa sings: "My heart weeps day and night, afraid that I will then not attain Vraja.
