(Refrain)
aho pasyatha citraḿ gokula-raji-mahimanam
ya iha suta-karmena parinayana-sarmane 'cinuta kamala-ganam amanam
 
(1)
yad anu kila radhikaḿ nikhila-sukha-sadhikam acita sakala-samudaya-saram
adhiyad api bhavatya muhur api ca navyataḿ vahati vahala-phalam aparam
 
(2)
ucitam api tadrsaḿ sa hi tanayam idrsaḿ labdham aracayad amala-rupam
apara-hrtam apy alaḿ pranaya-krta-sad-balaḿ sa-balam ahrta nija-kula-bhupam
 
(3)
tri-jagad ati-carakaḿ hrdayam ati-bharakaḿ dhartum abhito 'pi na sakyate
tad iha paramaḿ sukhaḿ vivaha-vadyam unmukhaḿ hrdi vasatiti ca vitarkyate
 
 
Refrain: Look at the wonderful glories of Gokula! Numberless goddesses of fortune have come to the auspicious ceremony of Lord Krsna's wedding!
 
1) See how Radha is the happiest and the most beautiful of all. See how She stands in peerless, eternal youth.
 
2) King Nanda has arranged that his son be gloriously dressed and decorated for the occasion. Filled with love, Balarama and all the royal relatives have come from Dvaraka.
 
3) Even the three worlds cannot hold all the joy in King Nanda's heart. I think his heart must be filled with joy as he yearns to hear the marriage vows.
