Hey Govind Hey Gopaal

One Vijayadashami program when we used to have our annual dance performances at my dance school, this one played and I was mesmerized by it. I knew it was based on raag desh as it is one of the very few raag that I can recognize. I used to hum this one nonstop after that but never found the audio any where and the dance teacher was unable to share because of copyrights. So when I went to search for it on google a couple of weeks back, after listening to quite a few different versions of it, I finally found the one based on raag desh. What a beautiful bhajan it is! It makes me want to listen to it all day...


hey govind hey gopaal (3)
raakho sharan hamaare
ab to jeevan haare (2)

hey govind hey gopaal
raaho charan hamaare
ab to jeevan haare (2)
hey govind hey gopaal, hey govind

(neer pibaan dharan? gayo
sindhu ke kinaare) (2)
sindhu beech basat graah (2)
charan dharit saare (2)
hey govind hey gopaal, hey govind

(dwaaruka mein shapath dayo
shor bhayo bhaare) (2)
(shankh chakra gadhaa padma
garud lai sithaare) (2)
hey govind hey gopaal, hey govind

(sur kahe shyaam suno
charan hai tihaare) (2)
ab ki baar paar karo (2)
nand ke dulaare (2)

hey govind hey gopaal
raaho charan hamaare
ab to jeevan haare (2)
hey govind hey gopaal, hey govind
