નારાયણનું નામ જ લેતાં, વારે તેને તજીએ રે;
મનષા વાચા કર્મણા કરીને, લક્ષ્મીવરને ભજીએ રે ... ટેક
nārāyan-nu nām ja letā, vāre tene taji-e re
manashā vāchā karmanā kari-ne, lakshmi-var-ne bhaji-e re ... repeat

કુળને તજીએ કુટુંબને તજીએ, તજીએ માને બાપ રે;
ભગિની સુત દારાને તજીએ, જેમ તજે કંચુકી સાપ રે ... ૧
kul-ne taji-e kutumb-ne taji-e, taji-e mā-ne bāp re
bhagini suta dārā-ne taji- e, jem taje kaň-chuki sāp re ... 1

પ્રથમ પિતા પ્રહલાદે તજીઆ, નવ તજીયું હરિનું નામ રે;
ભરત શત્રુઘ્ને તજી જનેતા, નવ તજીઆ શ્રી રામ રે ... ૨
pratham pitā prah-lāde taji-ā, nav taji-yu hari-nu nām re
bharat shatru-ghane taji jane-tā, nav taji-ā shri rām re ... 2

ઋષિપત્નીએ શ્રીહરિ કાજે, તજીઆ નિજ ભરથાર રે;
તેમાં તેનું કંઈએ ન ગયું, પામી પદારથ ચાર રે ... ૩
rushi-patni-e, shri-hari kāje, taji-ā nij bhar-thār re
temā tenu kaň-ii-e na gayu, pāmi padā-rath chār re ... 3

વ્રજવનિતા વિઠ્ઠલને કાજે, સર્વ તજીને ચાલી રે;
ભણે નરસૈંયો વૃન્દાવનમાં, મોહન સાથે મહાલી રે ... ૪
vraj-vanitā vith-thal-ne kāje, sarva taji-ne chāli re
bhane nar-sai-yo vrundā-van-māň, mohan sāthe mahāli re ... 4

English Translation:
0. As we utter the name of Narayan, we renounce relations with those who ask us not to do;
We begin worshipping Lakshmi's husband, Narayan with mind, speech and action.

1. We give up kinfolks and fanily, also, we give up relations with our parents; 
We give up our relations with sister, son and wife, as a snake sheds off its skin.

2. Formerly Prahlad left his parents, but he did not give up uttering god's name; 
Bharat and Shatrughna also left their mothers, but didn't lose devotion for Shri Ram.

3. Wife of a sage left her husband, for the sake of divine grace of god, 
And if fact, she didn’t lose anything but, ultimately she attained salvation.

4. Womenfolk of Vraj gave up everything, just to be with their beloved Vitthal,
Singing in worship of Lord, all the devotee dwelt in holy ecstasy with Krishna.
