hena nitai vine bhai radha-krsna paite nai
drdha kari’ dhara nitaira paya 
Cooling like ten million moons, Nitai’s lotus feet soothe the world with their shade. O brother! Without Nitai, you cannot reach Radha-Krishna. Firmly grasp Nitai’s feet.

sei pasu bada durachara
nitai na balila mukhe majila samsara-sukhe
vidya-kule ki karibe tara 
The life of one who had no connection with Nitai passed in vain. Such an animal is very wicked. What will learning (aristocratic birth) do for one who was immersed in worldly pleasures and never called aloud, «Nitai»?

dhara nitaiyer charan du’khani 
Mad with pride, forgetting Nitai’s feet, I accept untruth as truth. When Nitai bestows His mercy, then you will reach Radha-Krishna in Vraja. Grasp Nitai’s feet!
nitaiyer charana satya tahara sevaka nitya
nitai-pada sada kara asa
narottama bada duhkhi nitai more kara sukhi
rakha ranga-charanera pasa 
Nitai’s feet are truth, and His servants are eternal. Always aspire for Nitai’s feet. Narottam is very sad: «O Nitai! Make me happy. Keep me beside your reddish feet.»

O people of faith! O people of faith! O brothers! On Mahaprabhu’s order, I beg this of you: chant «Krishna!», serve Krishna, and learn about Krishna.

gunjahara atuni chuda taya
kesari jiniya kati kati-tate nila-dhati
bajana nupura ranga paya 
His forehead is anointed with tilak. His curling locks sway to and fro. He wears a crown of gunja berries. Blue garments decorate His waist, which surpasses that of a lion. His ankle bells ring on His reddish lotus feet.

madana madete andha visaye rahala dandha
hena nitai bhajite na paila 
Who can describe Nitai’s glory? He mercifully glanced at the souls and delivered the world with the Lord’s Name. Those who were blinded by Cupid and remained in the dupicity of mundanity could not serve Nitai.
