pallavi: When will affection in you be born towards me, who is an orphan?
anupallavi: O! affectionate Rama! Pattabhirama! Pray, forgive all my wrongdoings.
charaNam: Have I not looked upon only you, as my mother, father and all other relationships? There is no one else in whom I can seek refuge. O! Praised by Tyagaraja. Protect me.
