nṛsiḿhaḥ parato nṛsiḿho
yato yato yāmi tato nṛsiḿhaḥ
bahir nṛsiḿho hṛdaye nṛsiḿho

tava kara-kamala-vare nakham adbhuta-śṛńgaḿ
keśava dhṛta-narahari-rūpa jaya jagadīśa hare
WORD-FOR-WORD TRANSLATION: Namaste Narasimhaya
1) I offer my obeisances to Lord Narasimha, who gives joy to Prahlada Maharaja and whose nails are like chisels on the stone like chest of the demon Hiranyakasipu.
2) Lord Nrsimha is here and also there. Wherever I go Lord Nrsimha is there. He is in the heart and is outside as well. I surrender to Lord Nrsimha, the origin of all things and the supreme refuge.
3) O Kesava! O Lord of the universe! O Lord Hari, who have assumed the form of half-man, half-lionl All glories to You! Just as one can easily crush a wasp between one's fingernails, so in the same way the body of the wasp like demon Hiranyakasipu has been ripped apart by the wonderful pointed nails on Your beautiful lotus hands.
The third verse of this prayer is the fourth verse of Pralaya Payodhi Jale (Dasavatara stotram) by Srila Jayadeva Goswami.
Mayapura devotees sing the Om Hrim Pram Ksraum (Nrsimha kavaca maha-mantra) before singing the above verses.
Outside of ISKCON, some devotees will include a verse between 1 and 2 composed by Sridhara Maharaja.
“vāg-īśā yasya vadane lakṣmīr yasya ca vakṣasi
yasyāste hṛdaye saḿvit taḿ nṛsiḿham ahaḿ bhaje”
In His mouth the goddess Suddha-Sarasvati is always present, on His chest Laksmi-devi always resides, and within His heart special affection for His devotees is always manifest – I worship that Nrsimhadeva.
