Sab sant hain ras bhare sab hi ras ki khan,
Rangmahal mein Bihari Biharini biharein rasik sujaan.
Honi hi so ho gayi, Honi hoi so hoi,
Bhog lage so payie, Sri Bihari Biharini ko mukh joi.
Jikri phikri sab chdi ke Lalit keli gun gaav,
Sri Vrindavan mein basi raho naahi aur upaav.
Bihari tere naina roop bhare,
Nirkhi nirkhi pyari Radhe ko anat na kahu tare.
Sukh ko saar samuh Kishori umangi umangi anko bhare,
Sri Lalitmohini ki niju jivani ur so uraji dhare.
