Raga Hamsadvani

Thala Aadi

 

Pallavi

 

Raghu nayaka nee pada yuga rajeevamula,

Ne vidajala sri

 

Anupallvi

 

Agha jalamulo bara dilli nanna

Darimpa neve gathi khadasri,

 

Charanam

 

Bhava sagaramu dhata lekkane,

Palu gasibidi nee marugu cherthini,

Avani jadhipasritha rakshaka,

Ananda kara , Sri Thyagaraja nutha.

 

English translation

 

Pallavi

 

Oh Lord of Raghus, I canít let go,

Your lotus like feet.

 

Anupallavi

 

Are you not the one who encouraged me?

And my only support to drive away my sins?

 

Charanam

 

I am not able to cross this sea of birth,

And after great struggle , I came near and joinedyou,

Oh consort of earth , Oh saviour of those who seek your protection,

Oh giver of joy, oh God praised by Thyagaraja.
