Lyrics 

āvāso vipināyate priyasakhī-mālāpi jālāyate
tāpo’pi śvasitena dāva-dahana-jvālākalāpāyate|
sāpi tvad-viraheṇa hanta hariṇī-rūpāyate hā katham
kandarpo’pi yamāyate viracayan śārdūlavikrīḍitam||

stana-vinihitam api hāram udāram |
sā manute kṛśa-tanuratibhāram |
rādhikā kṛṣṇa rādhikā | rādhikā tava virahe keśava |1|

sarasa-masṛṇam api malayaja-paṅkam |
paśyati viṣamiva vapuṣi saśaṅkam |
rādhikā – tava virahe keśava |2|

śvasita-pavanam anupama-pariṇāham |
madana-dahanam iva vahati sadāham |
rādhikā – tava virahe keśava |3|

diśi diśi kirati sajala-kaṇa-jālam |
nayana-nalinam iva vigalita-nālam |
rādhikā – tava virahe keśava |4|

nayana-viṣayam api kisalaya-talpam |
kalayati vihita-hutāśa-vikalpam |
rādhikā – tava virahe keśava |5|

tyajati na pāṇi-talena kapolam |
bāla-śaśinam iva sāyam alolam |
rādhikā – tava virahe keśava |6|

haririti haririti japati sakāmam |
viraha-vihita-maraṇena nikāmam |
rādhikā – tava virahe keśava |7|

śrī-jayadeva-bhaṇitam iti gītam |
sukhayatu keśava-padam upanītam |
rādhikā – tava virahe keśava |8|
