આજ સોનાનો સૂર્ય ઉગ્યો, વ્હાલાજી ઘેર આવ્યા;
કામ કાજ મને કાંઈ ન સુઝે, મોહનજી મન ભાવ્યા ... ટેક
āja sonā-no surya ugyo, vahālā-ji gher āvyā
kām kāj mane kāň-ii na sujhe, mohan-ji man bhāvyā ... repeat

આજે મારે મન આનંદ અતિઘણો, પાથરણાં પથરાવું;
ચૂવા ચંદન કસ્તુરીના, છાંટણિયા છંટાવું ... ૧
āje māre man ānaňd ati-ghano, pātharnā patharāvu
chuva chaňdan kasturi-nā chhāňtaniyā chhaňtāvu ... 1

પ્રેમ આણીને પૂરું સાથિયા, તોરણ દ્વારે બંધાવું;
આરતી ઉતારું મારા કૃષ્ણજીવણની, મોતીડે વધાવું ... ૨
prem āni-ne puru sāthiyā, toran dvāre baňdhāvu
ārati utāru mārā krishna-jivan-ni moti-de vadhāvu ... 2

ઘુઘરી ઘમકે ને ચાલે ઠમકે, સોના અંબર શોહે;
કંઠે હાર હાથે બાજુ બંધ, લટકે ત્રિભુવન મોહે ... ૩
ghughari ghamake ne chāle thamake, sonā ambar shohe
kaňthe hār hāthe bāja baňdh, latake tri-bhuvan mohe ... 3

રૂમઝુમ રૂમઝુમ હું તો ચાલું, દુર્જન લોકો હસે;
ભલે મળ્યા મહેતા નરસૈંઇના સ્વામી,  નિંદનારા હાથ ઘસે ... ૪
rum-jhum rum-jhum huň to chālu, durjan loko hase
bhale malyā mahetā nar-saňi-nā svāmi, niňda-nārā hāth ghase ... 4

English Translation:
0. When our dear ones arrive at home, our joy knows no bounds. In this Bhajan, giving words to the feelings of a lovelorn Gopi, Bhakta Narsinh Mehta says, as my lover has arrived home, I feel as if sun of gold has risen today. Busied with welcoming endearing Mohan, she cannot concentrate on household work.

1. Gopi further says, my mind is full of joy as I spread carpets in home. Sprinkling mix of musk and sandal, I am adding fragrance in air.

2. Let me draw propitious figures and fill them with colors reflecting my shades of love. For reception of my endearing Krishna, let me tie a string of flowers and leaves on doorpost. As I in worship of my life, my Krishna waving glittering lamps sprinkling pearls.

3. When my beloved Krishna walks around, his streamlets are jingling, bedecked with gold jewellery, and armlets on arms, the Lord of Three Worlds (Tribhuvan) looks grandiosely handsome.

4. And when I walk bewitchingly, wicked persons laugh leeringly. It's my good luck, says Narsinh Mehta, I met my lord and those who criticized me, seethe with jealousy.
