Welcome to you Krishna, Surrender to you Krishna
He who lived in Mathura, He who has a tender face, He who killed Madhu
He who is hot with passion, he who is easy to get, He who is like a flower,
He who apples sandal paste, He who puts musk Thilaka,
He who is honoured, He who is my lord and baby son of Nanda Gopa.
Killer of Madhu, wrestlers Mushtika and Chanoora and elephant Kuvalayapita,
He who danced on Kaalinga, He who saved Gokula, He who has all good signs,
H who looked after devas and good people, He who created time just by thought,
He who is powerful in hundred crores of eons, He who is brave,
He who lived with sages, He who is pretty God of love, He who killed Asuras,
He who is sweet to devas, He who is bold in sweet passionate acts,
He who is worshipped in the minds of maidens of Brindavan.
