sajani yā-ite pekhalu kāna
tabadhari jaga-bhari bharala kusuma-śara
nayane nā heriye āna
ḍhala ḍhala sajala jalada tanu śohana
mohana abharaṇa sāja
aruṇa nayana gati bijurī camaka jiti
majhu mukha daraśi bihasi tanu moḍa-i
bigalita mohana baḿśa
nā jāniye kona manoratha ākula
kiśalaya-dale karu daḿśa
ataye se majhu mana jwalatahi anukhaṇa
dolata capala parāṇa
gobinda-dāsa micha-i āśoyāsa
tabahu nā milala kāna
(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.
This song is sung in Raga Gandhara.
