LYRICS:

(Refrain)

sajani yā-ite pekhalu kāna

tabadhari jaga-bhari bharala kusuma-śara

nayane heriye āna

ḍhala ḍhala sajala jalada tanu śohana

mohana abharaṇa sāja

aruṇa nayana gati bijurī camaka jiti

dagadhala kulabatī-lāja

majhu mukha daraśi bihasi tanu moḍa-i

bigalita mohana baḿśa

jāniye kona manoratha ākula

kiśalaya-dale karu daḿśa

ataye se majhu mana jwalatahi anukhaṇa

dolata capala parāṇa

gobinda-dāsa micha-i āśoyāsa

tabahu milala kāna

 

TRANSLATION

(Refrain) O gopi-friend, I saw Krsna. If I attain Him I will have the whole world. He struck me with the flower-arrow of His glance. Now my eyes see none but Him.

 

1) His form was glorious like a monsoon cloud. He was charming with graceful ornaments. The glance from his reddish eyes defeats lightning. That glance burned this saintly girl's shyness into ashes.

 

2) When He saw my face, He smiled. His body trembled, and He dropped His charming flute. He bit a budding twig. What desire filled Him? I do not know.

 

3) Since that time my heart burns at every moment. My restless life-breath trembles. Govinda dasa says: Your hope is false. Krsna will not meet with you yet.
