Ragam- Ananda Bhairavi
1.Devaki than kula kozhundai kuvalayathi avatharithai,
Kavalgal anaithu meeri gokulathai chendradainthai,
Pavai nallal Yasodai maagizh balakanai valanthavane ,
Moovulagilum mudalvane , Mukundane , thaalelo.
1.You were born in this earth in the clan of Devaki.
Braking all securities you went and reached Gokula,
And you grew up giving happiness as the son of the lady Yasoda,
Oh Lord who is first in the three worlds, Oh Mukunda , please sleep.
2.Pei oruthi paal oota uyir undaai aval chaaya,
Maya migu sakatan thannai maala andru nee udaithAI,
Aayarudan koodi ondrai vei kuzhalaal oodhi shendru ,
AAvinangal meitha endran achuthane Thalelo.
2.When a devil tried to feed you her milk , you drank her soul and made her fall down,
When the very magical sakatasura, you kicked him to death that day,
Oh my Achyutha who grazed the cattle , joining ,
With the cowherds by playing the flute and going with them, Be pleased top sleep
3.Uriyil vennai thayairum undu uralainile kattundu ,
Maramaram irandu idaye chendru ,Mani koopyarakku arul thandhu ,
Miratti nindra tai kana thirandha pavazha vaayil ,
Andam eerezhum katti nindra innamudhe THalelo.
3.After eating butter and curd kept in the rope hanging shelf,
And due to that after getting tied to the mortar, you went
In between the maramaras and blessed Nala and Khubara
And later when your mother threatened you opened ,
Your pearl like mouth and stood there showing her the fourteen worlds, be pleased to sleep.

4.Odi varum yamunai nadhi karai thanile ,
Gopiyarodu koodi kalithu aaddi kuzhal oodhi nindra gopala,
Naadhi oru naagam shinam odunga adhan shiramadhinil ,
Aadi nindrai akhilam pothra anburuve thalelo.
4.On the banks of Yamuna which was flowing with great speed,
You joined with the Gopis and played with them and later stood playing the flute,
Then you went to a serpent and to destroy its anger , you stood,
On its head , Oh personification of love praised by the world , be pleased to sleep.
5.Madha kariyin kombu odithu maaman kamsan thanai nashittu,
Maanbu migu annai thandhai magizha chirai meetavane ,
Marayavar ul karam thandha madal kandu virainthu yehi ,
Manam mudithai Rugmaniyai , Madhavane Thalelo.
5.Oh Lord who broke the tusk of ferocious elephant and then killed your uncle Kamsa,
And later released from prison your very honourable mother and father,
And later after seeing the letter delivered by the Brahmin, you went with speed,
And got married to Rugmani, Be pleased to sleep.
