Kripalu Bhajan

More Info

Gujarati transliterated at bottom of page


Beloved, wake up Lord, sleep not!

Beloved, wake up Lord, sleep not! Beloved (2)

Just come see the golden dawn

blossom like a rosebud's yawn!

Beloved, wake up Lord, sleep not Beloved . . . . . . .. .


"Krishna! Krishna!" the parrots say,

"Won't You come right out to play?"

Listen to the sparrows sing;

To their hearts, love You bring

In the yard the peacocks prance,

just for You, they do a dance!

Beloved, wake up Lord, sleep not . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .


Please come see Your dearest calf.

She won't eat on Your behalf!

Anxiously she waits for You:

On Your path, she wants a view.

Ganga has her grass to eat,

but Your darshan is more sweet!

Beloved, wake up Lord, sleep not . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . .


There's water in this glass golden;

To brush Your teeth a fresh green stem.

Smell this fragrance heavenly

For Your bath delightfully.

After that You'll choose a treat:

Milk, butter or milk that's sweet.

Beloved, wake up Lord, sleep not . . . . . . . . . . . . . .


"Kripalu"!!! Scolds all Your friends:

Our happiness on You depends.

Get up! Get up! Hurry fast.

How long will our patience last?

If You don't wake up and get dressed,

how will You look Your best?

Beloved, wake up Lord, sleep not . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
