Translation:


(1)
The divine couple, Sri Sri Radha and Krishna, are my life and soul. In life or death I have no other refuge
but Them.

(2)
In a forest of small kadamba trees on the bank of the Yamuna, I will seat the divine couple on a throne made
of brilliant jewels.

(3)
I will anoint Their dark and fair forms with sandalwood paste scented with cuya, and I will fan Them with
a camara whisk. Oh, when will I behold Their moonlike faces?

(4)
After stringing together garlands of malati flowers I will place them around Their necks, and I will
offer tambula scented with camphor to Their lotus mouths.

(5)
With the permission of all the sakhis, headed by Lalita and Visakha, I will serve the lotus feet of Radha
and Krishna.

(6)
Narottama dasa, the servant of the servant of Sri Krishna Caitanya Prabhu, longs for this service to the
divine couple.
