tuma vina merī kaun khabarale
mora mukuṭa pītāmbara sohe
kuṇḍala kī chavī nyārī

mīrā ke prabhu giridhara nāgara
caraṇa kamal balihāri
Refrain: Who but You would care for me, O lifter of Govardhana Hill?
1) Your peacock-crown, yellow pitambara, and ear-rings dazzle in a splendorous way.
2) O Lord, just as your protected Draupadi while she was being stripped in public, please protect me in the same way. Mira Bai is an offering to the Lotus Feet of the Lord, the courtly Giridhara.
This song came from the 1979 Golden Avatara released album by Lakshmi Shankar, “Mira Bhajans.” This song was rendered in Raga Kalingada.
