Morning prayer to Krishna
Translated by P. R. Ramachander
Vasu deva sutham devam Kamsa Chanura mardhanam, Devaki pramanandam Krishnam vande jagat gurum,
Hare murare madhu kaita bhare, gopala Govindas Mukunda Sowre, Yagnesa Narayana Krishna Vishno, Nirasrayam maam Jagadesa Raksha.
Oh God Hari,
Oh God who killed Mura,
Oh God who killed Madhu and Kaitabha,
Oh God who is protector of cows,
Oh God who lifted the earth,
Oh Lord, who gives immortal bliss,
Oh God who is hero among heroes,
Oh God who is the Lord of fire sacrifice.
Oh God in whom all souls reside,
Oh God who is black in colour,
And Oh Lord who is Vishnu himself,
I have become very helpless,
And So Oh Lord who is the master of universe,
Be pleased to save me.
Mookam karaothi vaachaalam, Pankum lankayathe girim, Yat kripa thamaham vande paramananda madhavam.
Beseeching for his grace,
I bow before the great Madhava,
Who is storehouse of happiness,
Who makes the dumb one an orator,
And makes the lame one climb a mountain.
