tuma vina merī kaun khabarale

govardhana giridhāri

kuṇḍala kī chavī nyārī

bharī sabhā meń draupadī ṭhāḍhī

TRANSLATION

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 disrobed in public, please protect me in the same way. Mira Bai is an offering to the Lotus Feet of the Lord, the courtly Giridhara.
