LYRICS:

(1)

nāce gorā preme bhorā

kṣaṇe bale hari hari

kṣaṇe vṛndāvana karaye smaraṇa

kṣaṇe kṣaṇe prāṇesvari

 

(2)

yābaka barana kaṭira basana

śobhā kare gorā-gāya

kakhana kakhana yamunā baliyā

suradhuni-tire dhāya

 

(3)

tā tha-i tā tha-i mṛdańga bāja-i

jhana jhana karatāla

nayana-ambuje bahe sura-nadi

gale ḍole bana-māla

 

(4)

ānanda-kanda gauracandra

akińcane baḍa dayā

dīna kṛṣṇa-dāsa karata āśa

o pada-pańkaja-chāyā

 

TRANSLATION

1) Overcome with ecstatic love, Lord Gaura dances. One moment He chants, "Hari!" The next moment He is rapt in thinking of Vrndavana. Moment after moment He accepts the mood of Sri Radha, the queen of Lord Krsna’s life.

 

2) A garment the color of yavaka is splendidly wrapped about His waist. Sometimes He runs to the Ganga, declaring, "The Yamuna!"

 

3) The mridangas play, "Ta tha-i! Ta tha-i!" The kartalas plays "Jhana jhana!" A Ganga of tears flows from Lord Gaura's lotus eyes. A forest-garland swings to and fro on His neck.

 

4) Lord Gauracandra is the root of all bliss. He is very kind to the devotees, who have no wealth but Him. Dina Krsna dasa yearns to attain the shade of His lotus feet.
