rādhe rādhe syāmal pyārī tāro jīvana naiyā
dvāre āyī dīna bhikhārī tāro jīvana naiyā
tu hai prītī sāńvariyā kī śyāma tere dīvāne
śyāmal bina jo baḿsī sūnī sura bina sūne tarāne
ab barsegī kṛpa tihārī tāro jīvana naiyā
rādhe rādhe rāha de mujhko sāńcā jīvana pāūń
jhūṭhe bandhan toḍa dūń sāre caraṇana meń miṭa jāūń
ab kyoń chup ho merī bāre tāro jīvana naiyā
śyāmal saritā prema mayī hai rādhā amṛta dhārā
dhārā se ek būnda jo chalake ho jāye nistārā
śaraṇa paḍe hai sudha lo hamārī tāro jīvana naiyā
tu hai bhakti tu hai śakti tu hī hai jagamāyā
terā cintana bandhana kāṭe jisne bhī tujhe dhyāyā
śyāma prīyā ham prema pūjārī taro jīvana naiyā
(Refrain): Radhe Radhe! Lover of Lord Syama! Please deliver me, Oh boat of life! This fallen beggar has come to Your door. Please give me a new life. Please deliver me, Oh boat of life!
1) You are the lover of Your love. Lord Krsna is madly loving You. Without Krsna, You are like a silent flute unable to produce a tone or melody. Now, Your mercy will shower upon me; please deliver me, O boat of life!
2) Radhe Radhe! Please show me the path to attain a pure life. I will break all false bonds and offer myself completely to Your lotus feet. After saying this, why have you become silent? Please deliver me, O boat of life!
3) Lord Syama is the ocean of love for Radha who is the nectarean shore. From this shore, there is drop that flashes and shines. I surrender unto Your lotus feet and please change me; please deliver me, O boat of life!
4) You are devotional service. You are spiritual power. You are Jagamaya. Those who meditate upon You and worship You will cut false material relations. Oh Beloved of Syama, we are worshippers of love. Please deliver me, O boat of life!
This bhajan is found in Hari Om Sharan’s 1981 recording “Prabhupada Krpa.” It was rendered in Raga Carukesi in Dadra Tala.
