Yashoda is swinging Krishna in a baby-swing. She moves the baby-swing and coaxes Krishna with voice out of affection. She sings whichever lullaby comes to Her mind.||1||
[She sings] ‘O Sleep! Come in the eyes of my baby. Why don't you come and make Him asleep? Why don't you come running when Kanha (Krishna) is calling you?’||2||
Sometimes Hari (Krishna) closes His eyelids and sometimes He parts His lips. Knowing that Krishna is sleeping, Yashoda remains quiet and asks others to remain quiet too.||3||
And when Hari woke up during this time, Yashomati (Yashoda) sings in a melodious voice. O Soordas! The pleasure [of having Lord as a baby] which is unachievable for great sages is available to the consort of Nand (Yashoda).||4||
