Verses from his poems
Oh sweet Lord Krishna, you are the saviour, please take me to your abode, and get me relieved from the chain of birth cycles!
Oh the great Krishna. Please make me as your dear friend, and give me your affectionate compassion!
Oh Krishna! There is no beginning or end for you! You are alive even during the time of the Maha Pralaya (Entire destruction of the universe after the completion of a yuga).
Oh Krishna my lovely child! Please appear before me and show your divine presence and I want to see you in the form of a child!
Oh Krishna, once again take birth in this Kaliyuga and protect us from the clutches of the evil Kali Purusha!
Let us worship the great saint and be blessed.
