govardhana girivara kevala nirjana sthala
rāi kānu karibe śayane
lalitā-viśākhā-sańge sevana kariba rańge
sukhamoy rātūl caraṇe
kanaka sampuṭa kari karpūra tāmbūla bhari
maṇimoy kiṇkiṇi ratna nupūra āni
kanaka kaṭorā puri sugandhi candana bhari
dońhākāra śri-ańge dāliba
guru-rūpā-sakhībāme tribańga bhańgimā ṭhāme
cāmarera bātāsa kariba
donhār kamala āńkhi pūlaka haiyā dehki
duhuń pada paraśiba kare
caitanya-dāsera dās mane mātra abhilāś
narottama dāse sadā sphure
(1) In a solitary place on Govardhana Hill, the best of mountains, Sri Sri Radha and Krsna sit on a couch. When, accompanied by Lalita and Visakha, will I jubilantly serve Their reddish lotus feet?
(2) When will I take camphor and betel-nuts from a golden box, and place it in their lotus mouths? When will I place jewel ankle-bells on Their lotus feet?
(3) When will I fill a golden goblet for the Divine Couple? When will I anoint Their beautiful limbs with aromatic sandal paste? When, my spiritual master, in his original form as a gopi, at my left, will I fan Their three-fold bending forms with a camara wisk?
(4) When, seeing the lotus eyes of the Divine couple, will the hairs of my body stand up in ecstasy? When will I directly touch their lotus feet? Narottama dasa, who is the servant of LordCaitanya’s servants, desires in this way. He has no other desire.
