kothāya go prema-mayī rādhe rādhe
rādhe, rādhe go, jaya rādhe rādhe
 
dekhā diye prāṇa rākho rādhe rādhe
tomāra kāṅgāla tomāya ḍāke rādhe rādhe
 
niyama kore sadāī ḍāke, rādhe rādhe
eka-bār ḍāke keśī-ghāte ābār ḍāke vamśī-vaṭe
 
eka-bār ḍāke nidhu-vane ābār ḍāke kuñja-vane
eka-bār ḍāke rādhā-kuṇḍe ābār ḍāke śyāma-kuṇḍe
eka-bār ḍāke kusuma-vane ābār ḍāke govardhane
eka-bār ḍāke tāla-vane ābār ḍāke tamāla-vane
 

“Where is the incarnation of love, Rādhe Rādhe! All glories to Śrī Rādhā. Show Yourself to Me, Rādhā, give Me back My life. I have become a beggar for You, O Rādhā, and I am always calling You, ‘Rādhe! Rādhe!’ Sometimes at Keśī-ghāṭa, sometimes at Vaṁśī-vaṭa. Sometimes in Nidhuvana, sometimes in Sevā-kuñja. Sometimes at Rādhā-kuṇḍa, sometimes at śyāma-kuṇḍa. Sometimes at Kusuma Sarovara, sometimes at Girirāja Govardhana. Sometimes at Tālavan, sometimes at Tamālvan.” (Adapted from Kothāya Go Prema-Mayī by Śrīla Gaura Kiśora dāsa Bābājī Mahārāja)

dekhā diyā rādhe! rākhoha prāṇa!
boliyā kāṅdaye kānane kāna
 
nirjana kānane, rādhāre dhori,
miliyā parāṇa juḍāya hari
 
bole, tūhu vinā kāhāra rāsa?
tūhu lāgi mora varaja-vāsa
 

Calling out, “Rādhā! Please let Me see You! Please save My life!” Kṛṣṇa weeps in the forest.
Meeting in a secluded forest, Kṛṣṇa embraces Rādhā. Now His feverish life has become cool. Kṛṣṇa says, “How can there be a rāsa dance without You? I stay in Vraja only for Your sake.” (Śrīla Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura, Gītāvalī, Śata-Koṭi-Gopī 4-6)

kothāya go prema-mayī rādhe rādhe

    “What need is there for any comment when everything has already been
    said when Krsna cries:” kothāya go prema-mayī rādhe rādhe
    rādhe, rādhe go, jaya rādhe rādhe”?
    JAYA SRI RADHE! JAYA GAURA KISORA DASA BABAJI!”
