The Deeds Of Krishna – Sant Surdas

There is no end to the deeds of Krishna: 

true to his promise, he tended the cows in Gokula; 

Lord of the gods and compassionate to his devotees, 

he came as Nrisingha 

and tore apart Hiranyakashipa. 

When Bali spread his dominion 

over the three worlds, 

he begged three paces of land from him 

to uphold the majesty of the gods, 

and stepped over his entire domain: 

here too he rescued the captive elephant. 

Countless such deeds figure in the Vedas and the Puranas, 

hearing which Suradasa 

humbly bows before that Lord.
