Text 1

hā hā kabe gaura-nitāi
e patita jane uru kṛpā kori’
dekhā dibe du’ṭī bhāi

Ah! Ah! When will the two brothers Gaura-Nitāi very mercifully allow this fallen person to see Them?

Text 2

duṅhu kṛpā-bale nabadwīpa-dhāme
dekhibo brajera śobhā
ānanda-sukhada- kuñja manohara
heribo nayana-lobhā

When, by Their mercy, will I see the beauty of Vraja manifest in Navadvīpa? When, in Ananda-sukhada-kuñja, will my eyes see the charming sight they yearn to see?

Text 3

tāhāra nikaṭe śrī-lalitā-kuṇḍa
ratna-bedī kota śata
jathā rādhā-kṛṣṇa līlā bistāriyā
bihārena abirata

How many hundreds of jewel courtyards will be manifest around Lalitā-kuṇḍa? There Śrī Śrī Rādha and Kṛṣṇa will enjoy many pastimes without stop.

Text 4

sakhī-gaṇa jathā līlāra sahāya
nānā-sebā-sukha pāya
e dāsī tathāya sakhīre ājāte
kārje iti-uti dhāya

The gopīs will perform many delightful services to help the divine couple’s pastimes. On the gopīs‘ orders, this maidservant will run here and there on various errands.

Text 5

mālatīra mālā gānthiyā ānibo
dibe tabe śakhi-kore
rādhā-kṛṣṇa-gale sakhī parāibe
nācibo ānanda-bhore

Stringing two jasmine garlands, I will place them in a sakhī‘s hands. When she places them around Śrī Śrī Rādha and Kṛṣṇa’s necks, I will dance with bliss.
