કાહે ન મંગલ ગાયે, જશોદા મૈયા, કાહે ન મંગલ ગાયે;
પુરણ બ્રહ્મ અખંડ અવિનાશી, સો તેરી ધેનૂ ચરાવે ... ટેક
kāhe na maňgal gāye, jashodā maiyā, kāhe nā maňgal gāye
puran brahma akhaňd avi-nāshi, so teri dhenu charāve ... repeat
કોટિ કોટિ બ્રહ્માંડના કર્તા, જપ તપ ધ્યાન ન આવે;
ના જાણું એ કોન પુન્યસે, તાકો ગોદ ખિલાવે ... ૧
koti koti brahmāňd-nā karatā, jap tap dhyān na āve
nā jānu e kon punya-se, tāko god khilāve ... 1

બ્રહ્માદિક ઇન્દ્રાદિક શંકર, નિગમ નેતિ કરી ગાવે;
શેષ સહસ્ત્ર મુખે જપે નિરંતર, સો તાકો પાર ન પાવે ... ૨
brahmā-dik indrā-dik shaňkar, nigam neti kari gāve
shesh sahastra mukhe jape niraňtar, so tāko pāra na pāve ... 2

સુંદર વદન કમલ દલ લોચન, ગૌધેનૂ કે સંગે આવે;
આરતી કરત જશોદા મૈયા, કબીરજી દર્શન પાવે ... ૩
suňdar vadan kamal dal lochan, ga-u-dhenu ke saňge āve
ārati karat jashodā maiyā, kabir-ji dar-shan pāve ... 3

English Translation :
0. In this verse, the sage poet Kabir wonders, why shouldn't mother Jashoda feel blissful and be in high spirits when the Supreme Incarnation of Akhand (one who is not separate or broken away from the Brhma - the creator of the universe) and Avinashi (indestructible)* grazes hr cows? How can you stop singing benedictory poems or songs?

[*Avinashi  or indestructible - In Bhagwad Geeta, Lord Krishna has described quality of the spiritual aspect of soul as - नैनं छिन्दन्ति शस्त्राणि, नैनं दहति पावकः। न चैनं क्लेदयन्त्यापो न शोषयति मारूतः।। - 2/24 - This soul is formless, body-less and imperceptible. Hence, it cannot be destroyed by any perceptible weapon, burnt by fire, drenched by water or dried by wind.]   

1. The ultimate creator of the universe, whose grace cannot be attained millions of meditations, penances and prayers; Kabir is astonished as to what sort of divine karma that Jashoda had performed that she has been blessed with the boon that enables her to fondle and play with the Supreme Divine Himself!  

2. Despite the deities such as Brahma, Vishnu, Shankar, Indra and others don’t get tired singing praises of him, and the Shesh Naag incessantly chants his name devotionally through his thousand mouths, but have not been able to realize his true divine essence.    

3. Having eyes like lotus petals and attractive countenance, God, drives along a herd of cows as a cowherd, and as Jashoda lovingly and ceremoniously (with an Aarti) welcomes him home; perceiving such divine moments, Kabir considers himself divinely graced and honored.
