LYRICS:

(refrain)

śrī rādhe govinda, gopāla terā pyārā nām hai

 

(1)

mora mukuṭa pītāmabara sohai gala vaijantī mālā

koi kahe vasudeva ko nandana koi kahe nanda lālā

 

(2)

jamunā kināre kṛṣṇa kanhaiyā muralī madhura bajāwe

gwāla bāla sańga kānhā mākhana miśrī khāwe

 

(3)

arjuna ratha tumne hāńka bhārata bhāi laāḍāī

nām ko lekara bīṣa bhī pāgai dekho mīrābāī

 

(4)

jala meń gala ko grāha ne ghera jala meń cakra calāyā

jab jab bhīra paḍī bhaktana pāī nańge panvana dhāyā

 

(5)

ajāmīla ke anta samaya meń terā nām jab āyā

jama dūtoń se mukta karake apane dhām pathāyā

 

(6)

narasi ke saba kāja sudhāre mujhako mata bisarāwe

janama janama terā sārańga terā guṇa gāwe

 

TRANSLATION

Refrain: O pleaser of the senses of Radha! O protector of cows! Your name is very precious to us!

 

1) You are beautified by a peacock-feather crown, yellow garments, and multi-colored flower garland. Some people call You the son of Vasudeva, while other call You the song of Nanda Maharaja.

 

2) You, darling Krsna Kanhaiya, play sweet melodies on Your low-pitched murali flute while standing on the bank of the Yamuna River. O Kanha, You eat butter and sugar candy sweets in the company of Your cowherd boyfriends.

 

3) You drove Arjuna’s chariot and thus brought about the great battle of ancient India. When the female saint, Mira Bai, chanted Your name and drank the poison sent by her envious husband to kill her, the poison was turned into nectar.

 

4) When the elephant Gajendra was trapped by the crocodile in the lake, You threw Your Sudarsana Cakra into the water to save him. Whenever the devotees [like Draupadi] are afraid of being naked, then You come running and spread Your cloth to cover them.

 

5) When Ajamila was approaching his final moment, he remembers to utter Your name. Thus he was freed from the grasp of the Yamadutas and dispatched in the company of the Visnudutas to Your own transcendental abode.

 

6) You also fulfilled all the tasks undertaken by the saint Narasi Mehta. You are taking care of all these devotees – please do not forget me! May I remain absorbed birth after birth in Your affection while confidently singing Your glories.
