નહિ રે વિસારું હરિ, અંતરમાંથી નહિ રે વિસારું હરિ.
nahi re visāru hari, antar-ma-thi nahi re visāru hari

જલ જમુનાનાં પાણી રે જાતાં, શિર પર મટકી ધરી,
     આવતાં ને જાતાં મારગ વચ્ચે, અમૂલખ વસ્તુ જડી ... ૧
jal jamunā-nā pāni re jātā, shir par mataki dhari
     āvtā ne jātā mārag vachche, amulakh vastu jadi ... 1

આવતાં ને જાતાં વૃન્દા રે વનમાં, ચરણ તમારે પડી,
     પીળાં પિતાંબર જરકશી જામા, કેસર આડ કરી ... ૨
āvtā ne jātā vrundā re van-mā, charan tamāre padi
     pilā pitāmbar jarkashi jāmā, kesar ād kari ... 2

મોરમુગટ ને કાને રે કુંડલ, મુખ પર મોરલી ધરી
     બાઇ મીરાં કહે પ્રભુ ગિરધરનાં ગુણ, વિઠ્ઠલ વરને વરી ... ૩
mor-mugat ne kāne re kundal, mukh par morali dhari
     bāi mirā kahe prabhu girdhar-na gun, viththal var-ne vari ... 3

1. Shree Ramkabir Mandir Bhajan Mandal - February 4, 2017, Kabir Temple, Palanpur, Gujarat, India

English Translation:
Pious devotional singer and saint Meerabai avows not forget Hari - her ardently loved Shri Krishna from her mind.

1. Frequenting the river bank of River Jamuna to fetch water with an earthen pot placed on her head, she is said to have found the most valuable thing. What is that precious thing she found? Incessant chant of the name of God, proves futile, unless it is uttered with utmost love and devotion combined with virtuous deeds. If the God decides to shower grace on his devotee, it may come as something precious, unexpectedly found while treading the path of life!

2. While passing through the forest of Vrunda (Tulsi - Basil) Meera used to visualize the presence of Lord Krishna in the forest as she fervently falls to the visualized image of the Lord attired in yellow dress woven with gold threads, with saffron Tilak on forehead.

3. Visualizing the image of Lord Krishna, Saint and poet Meerabai describes, splendorous charm of Krishna adorned with a throne embellished with Peacock feather, earring on the ears (even in modern times, Hindu males customarily and ritualistically adorn earrings) and with flute placed over his lips. Singing the virtues of Lord Krishna alias Vitthal or Girdhar, Meerabai, declares she is married to her beloved deity, Lord Krishna.
