Who doeth know thou heart, thy mind o'Lord
Mystical as in blissful births of alwars
Who doeth know thou source
Wishing thou weapons incarnate, personify
And in compliance unto thou holy feet
I'm at thou behest to versify thou divine masquerade
Thy Mercy, Narayana, rest in heart and mind mine!
And at the Lord's behest Panchajanyam complied
The cosmic whizzbang turned into an incarnate spirit
'Thiruvekka poet' perseverant, devout born
Born upon a couch of lotus a chit celestial
And at the Lord's behest Sun rose to light
By and by perceived pond-found Poikai Alwar deific..
'A Hydraulic-lamp Earth seemed to be
Tapered Sun blazing upon the horizon-albidos'
And at the Lord's behest his verses marvelled
Hymns and him in inly oneness in Him
Ocean of devotion blossoms eternal a flower
Indeed an aeonian Lotus Poikai Alwar
And at the Lord's behest Kaumodhaki complied
The divine mace turned into an incarnate spirit
On the bed of pastoral 'Kurukkatti' flower
Flowered 'Kadalmallai poet' Bhoodathalwar
And at the Lord's behest love worded gospel
Hymned virtuous poet to revel..
'Impulsive lamp of divotional love mine
Desire-filled, sentience-lit..illumined thy abode Narayana'
And at the Lord's behest verses famed immortal
Just the mortals shook yet the Pasurams stood
Endless coil of time timelessly ringing
Bhoodathalwar, his amaranthine hymns ever chiming
And at the Lord's behest Nandhaki complied
The divine sword turned into an incarnate spirit
Wished Kesava a well at Mayilai
On the bed of red lilies born Peialwar
And at the Lord's behest effused devotion crazy
Versed piety versified visioned praises..
'O' ornate Sri, aureate Narayana, adorning conch, discus
O' what a vision glorious Lord of saphire ocean'
And at the Lord's behest pasurams excelled
Ever trance-dipped Peialwar salvaged
Ineffable him in the paradise of pietism
Affable, adorable, eternal ever his pasurams
