Munupe theliyaka poyena
Munupe theliyaka poyena,
Muninutha dhayaledhaa yenaa
Did you not know my state of affairs earlier ,
Oh Lord praised by sages, do you not have any mercy ?
Anuvisumantha lethanusunu nan-,
Nalayinchi veduka joochutaku.
To enjoy seeing me run here and there ,
Did you not tell me that it is not the proper time?
Aanati manchi nadathanu joochi nee-,
Vathayantha krupa seya ledhaa,
Yinadu namadhi itlounani nee-,
kInakula thilaka Thyagaraja nutha.
Earlier did you not watch over my good behavior,
And showed me your mercy, Oh Greatest of clan of sun,
And did you not know that my mind ,
Would be getting tossed about now, Oh Lord Worshipped by Thyagharaja.
