sundari tuyā lāgi sambādala kāna
biraha-kṣīṇa tanu anukhaṇa jarajara
aba ithe bidhi bhela bāma
cānda nehāri candane tanu lepana
tāpa saha-i nā pāra
dhabala nicola baha-i nā pāra-i
kaiche karaha abhisāra
yatanahi megha mallāra ālāpa-i
timira parāṇa gati āśe
ā-ota jalada tatahi uḍi yā-ota
utapata dīragha niśāse
tuyā guṇa nāma gāna japi jība-i
bahu pulakāyita dehā
gobinda-dāsa kaha iha aparūpa
yāhā iha naba naba lehā
(Refrain) O beautiful girl, Krsna talks about You. Separated from You, His body has become emaciated. At every moment He is distraught. Fate is tormenting Him.
1) He gazes at the moon. He anoints his limbs with sandal paste. Still He cannot tolerate the flames of His fever. He cannot wear His white shawl. How can he meet with You?
2) Wishing to hide in the darkness, He plays the alap of Raga Megha Malhara on His flute. As the clouds come and go, He deeply sighs.
3) He sings of Your virtues. It is only by chanting japa of Your name that He lives. The hairs of His body stand erect. Govinda dasa says: These symptoms are not surprising. Are they not the signs of new love?
This song is sung in Raga Sri.
