nāce gorā preme bhorā
kṣaṇe bale hari hari
kṣaṇe vṛndāvana karaye smaraṇa
kṣaṇe kṣaṇe prāṇesvari
yābaka barana kaṭira basana
śobhā kare gorā-gāya
kakhana kakhana yamunā baliyā
tā tha-i tā tha-i mṛdańga bāja-i
jhana jhana karatāla
nayana-ambuje bahe sura-nadi
gale ḍole bana-māla
akińcane baḍa dayā
dīna kṛṣṇa-dāsa karata āśa
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.
This song was featured in Visvanatha Cakravarti Thakura’s compilation, Sri Ksanada Gita Cintamani, Vimsa Ksanada Sukla Pancami (the 20th night, fifth night of the bright portion of the month), as the first song.
This song can be rendered in Raga Todi or Raga Yaman Kalyan as shown in the clip above.
