preme ghūrṇita, nayana pūrṇita, cañcala mṛdu-gati-ninditaḿ
vadana-maṇḍala, cāńda niramala, vacana amṛta-khaṇḍitam
asīma guṇa-gaṇe, tārile jaga-jane, mohe kāhe kuru vañcitaḿ
jayati jaya, vasu-jāhnava-priya, dehi me sva-padāntikam   

Your eyes are rolling in ecstasy as You cast furtive glances. Defeating nectar, Your face is as effulgent and beautiful as the full moon. You are the reservoir of all transcendental qualities. O Nityananda Prabhu, I glorify You again and again. You are the beloved of Vasudha and Jahnava. Please give me the shelter of Your lotus feet.

mihira-maṇḍala, śravaṇe-kuṇḍala, gaṇḍa-maṇḍale dolitaḿ
kiye nirupama, mālatīra dāma, ańge anupama-śobhitam
madhura-madhu-made, matta madhukara, cāru caudike cumbitaḿ
jayati jaya, vasu-jāhnava-priya, dehi me sva-padāntikam  

Your earrings, brilliant as the sun, dangle playfully upon Your attractive cheeks. O Prabhu! Maddened bumblebees hover above and drink the honey from the fragrant malati garland decorating Your limbs. O Nityananda Prabhu, I glorify You again and again. You are the beloved of Vasudha and Jahnava. Please give me the shelter of Your lotus feet.

ājānulambita, bāhu-suvalita, matta-karibara-ninditaḿ
bhāyā bhāyā baki, gabhīra ḍāka-i, karu daśa-dika bheditam
amara kinnara, nāga-nara-loka, sarva-citta sudarśitaḿ
jayati jaya, vasu-jāhnava-priya, dehi me sva-padāntikam  

Your long graceful arms hang down to Your knees, and they conquer the beauty of the trunk of an intoxicated elephant. With a thundering voice reverberating throughout the ten directions You cry out, ‘O brother, O brother! Where are You?’ The hearts of all the residents from the hellish regions to the heavenly planets are attracted by Your irresistable beauty. O Nityananda Prabhu, I glorify You again and again. You are the beloved of Vasudha and Jahnava. Please give me the shelter of Your lotus feet. 

kṣaṇe huhuńkṛta, lampha jhampha kṛta, megha nindita-garjitaḿ
siḿha-ḍamaru, kṣīṇa kaṭitaṭa, nīla-paṭṭa-vāsa-śobhitam
so pańhu dhunī-tīre, saghane dhāba-i, caraṇa bhare mahī kampitaḿ
jayati jaya, vasu-jāhnava-priya, dehi me sva-padāntikam 
 
Sometimes in ecstasy You dance blissfully and roar so loudly that the vibration conquers the rumbling of clouds. From Your waist—which is as thin as a lion’s waist or a damru drum—hangs a beautiful blue silken cloth. Whenever You run swiftly along the bank of the Ganges the earth trembles below the caress of Your lotus feet. O Nityananda Prabhu, I glorify You again and again. You are the beloved of Vasudha and Jahnava. Please give me the shelter of Your lotus feet.

abanī-maṇḍala, preme bādala, karala avadhauta dhābitaḿ
tāpī dīna hīna, tārkika durjjana, keha nā bhela bañcitam
śrī-pada-pallava, madhura-madhurī, bhajata bhramara-sukhapītaḿ
jayati jaya, vasu-jāhnava-priya, dehi me sva-padāntikam  

You have completely inundated the entire universe with the clouds of Your ecstasy. No one, be he miserable, poor, downtrodden, quarrelsome or sinful can escape the flood of Your mercy. Your beautiful lotus feet are softer than a tender green leaf. The beelike devotees always drink the sweet nectar flowing from Your lotus feet. O Nityananda Prabhu, I glorify You again and again. You are the beloved of Vasudha and Jahnava. Please give me the shelter of Your lotus feet.

o maṇi-mañjīra, cāru taralita, madhura madhura sunāditaḿ
atula rātula, yugala pada-tala, amala-kamala-surājitam
tejiyā amara, abanī himakara, nitā-i-pada-nakha śobhitaḿ
jayati jaya, vasu-jāhnava-priya, dehi me sva-padāntikam  

Your jeweled anklebells move gently and tinkle sweetly. The soles of Your incomparably pure and soft lotus feet radiate a reddish hue resembling two beautiful lotus flowers. The cooling rays of the full moon have left the heavens to reside beneath Your lotus feet and emanate a shimmering effulgence from Your toenails. O Nityananda Prabhu, I glorify You again and again. You are the beloved of Vasudha and Jahnava. Please give me the shelter of Your lotus feet.

yāńhāra bhaye, kali-bhujaga, bhāgala bhela sabhe harṣitaḿ
apana-kiraṇe janu, timira nāśa-i, taiche kamala-surājitam
durita-bhaye kṣiti, abahi ātura, bhāra tāra karu nāśitaḿ
jayati jaya, vasu-jāhnava-priya, dehi me sva-padāntikam  

Out of fear of You the snake of Kali fled far away, thus making everyone happy. As the rising sun dispels the fear of darkness and gives life to the lotus flower, Your appearance removes everyone’s fear of their sinful reactions and gives new life and hope to Bhumi (Mother Earth), who was suffering greatly from the burden of those sins. O Nityananda Prabhu, I glorify You again and again. You are the beloved of Vasudha and Jahnava. Please give me the shelter of Your lotus feet.

īṣata hasa-ite, jhalake dāminī, kāminī-gaṇa mana mohitaḿ
so pāńhu dhunī-tīre, nā jāni kāra bhāve, ābanī upare giritam
bacana bala-ite, adhara kampa-i, bāhu tuli kṣaṇe roditaḿ
jayati jaya, vasu-jāhnava-priya, dehi me sva-padāntikam

With a slight smile radiating from Your lotus face You attract all beautiful girls. Who can understand the ecstatic emotions You relish when You fall to the ground in a swoon? Your lips tremble and sometimes You cry as You raise Your hands over Your head. O Nityananda Prabhu, I glorify You again and again. You are the beloved of Vasudha and Jahnava. Please give me the shelter of Your lotus feet.
