LYRICS:

(Refrain)

saye kiba se-i nayāna cāhani

hāsira holole more parāṇa-putalī dole

dite cā-i yaubana nichani

 

(1)

bhāle se candana cānda kāminī mohana phānda

āndhāre kariyāche ālā

meghera upara kibā sadā-i udaya kare

niśi diśi śaśī ṣola-kalā

 

(2)

kibā se cūḍāra ṭhāṭa daśa nakha cānda nāṭa

aparūpa baḿśī bājā-ite

hera-ite se-i mukha mane haya yata sukha

jite ki pāriye pāsārite

 

(3)

kula śīla yata chila mane lāge saba gela

dekhiyā bāreka se-i rūpa

gobinda-dāsera cite aichana māgaye go

naba anurāgera swarūpa

 

TRANSLATION

(Refrain) I gaze at Him with my eyes. The puppet of my life-breath is tossed to and fro by the waves of His smiles. I gaze at Him. I worship His youthful grace.

 

1) The sandal-paste-moon on His forehead is a trap to charm and catch beautiful girls. It is effulgence that lights up the darkness. He is a raincloud where rests a full moon that lights up the night.

 

2) His hair is graceful. The ten moons of His fingernails dance as He plays His wonderful flute. When I gaze at His face, my heart is filled with bliss. I am overcome. How can I forget Him?

 

3) Now that I have once seen His handsome form, I find that piety, good character, and all else have fled from my heart. In his heart Govinda dasa prays that in this way he may also fall in love with Lord Krsna.
