To Shri Krishna

O Krishna, my friend, let me go to the water,
O let me go today.

Why play tricks with one who is already thy slave?
O friend, let me go today, let me go.

I have to fill my pitcher in the waters of the Jumna.
I pray with folded hands, friend, let me go.

To Shri Krishna by Swami Vivekanand
