Oh, Prananayaka! Please protect me my darling!
You fulfill the desires of the cowherd maidens, you resemble the full moon.
Give me your lips forever, which resemble the Bimba fruit and is as cool as the breeze of the sandal mount.
Oh Madanamohananga (beautiful as Cupid), you are like the bee that hovers around the Latagrha (house of creepers).
Oh Nandakumara (son of Nanda), come immediately, my favorite and beautiful one! Hero of my heart! You shine brightly in the hearts of the desirous maidens.
Oh Hemasupradipaka (shining as gold!) Fulfiller of desires! Your forehead is like the Yaminisa Sakala (the crescent moon), please protect me, the one who gives effulgence to Gokula.
