Lyrics 

atha katham api yāminīṃ vinīya
smara-śara-jarjaritā’pi sā prabhāte |
anunaya-vacanaṃ vadantam agre
praṇatam api priyam āha sābhyasūyam ||

rajani-janita-guru-jāgara-rāga-kaṣāyitam alasa-niveśaṃ |
vahati nayanam anurāgam iva sphūṭam udita-rasābhiniveśam ||1||

yāhi mādhava yāhi keśava mā vada kaitavavādaṃ |
tām anusara sarasīruha-locana yā tava harati viṣādam ||dhruvapadaṃ||||

kajjala-malina-vilocana-cumbana-viracita-nīlima-rūpam |
daśana-vasanam aruṇam tava kṛṣṇa tanoti tanoranurūpaṃ ||2||

vapuranuharati tava smara-saṃhara-khara-nakhara-kṣata-rekham |
marakata-śakala-kalita-kaladhauta-liperiva ratijaya-lekham ||3||

caraṇa-kamala-galad-alaktaka-siktam idam tava hṛdayam udāraṃ |
darsayatīva bahirmadana-druṇa-nava-kisalaya-parivāram ||4||

daśana-padaṃ bhavadadhara-gataṃ mama janayati cetasi khedam |
