O! Lord! You remove the sorrow of the afflicted and do what benefits the good ones
Ajamila, the vulture, the hunter – Tell me who is good among these!
You made the bird fall on the way, and prorected even the courtesan!
You placed the crown on Dhruva’s head, and protected Prahlada
For the sake of devotees, you bridged the ocean and burnt the city of Lanka!
You were pleased with the little rice, got satiety with a meal of leaves!
You did not mind the half-eaten fruit, ate the sour and the sweet!
When the crocodile got hold of the elephant
When Dushshasan pulled the robe,
in the midst of the assembly, when Draupadi called Krishna! Krishna!
Immediately You , Hari, came determined to protect!
Please come to the door of Surdas, the blind beggar!
