1.Raghuvar thumko Meri laaj,
1.Oh greatest of Raghu clan, this is my modest request

Thum ho Garib nivas ,
Raghuvar thum ho Garib Nivas ,
Raghu var thumko meri laaj.

AS you are the refuge of the poor,
Oh great one of Raghu clan , You are the refuge of the poor,
Oh great one ogf Raghu clan this is my modest request.
3.Pathith uddharan virath thiharo ,
Sravanan suni aavaaj,
Hum tho pathith purathan kahiye,
Paar utharo Jahaj.
Raghu var paar utharo Jajaj ,
Raghuvar thumko meri laaj
3.It is your penance to uplift the fallen ones,

Please take me, this boat to other shore ,

Oh great one of Raghu clan, this is my modest request.

Yahi thihari kaaj ,
Thulasidas par kirape keeje ,
Bhakthi dhaan dehum aaj ,
Raghu var thimko meri laj .

This is your job,
Please take mercy on Thulasidas ,
And give me charity of devotion today ,
