Doha

Shri Guru Charan Saroj raj Nija manu Mukura sudhari

Baranau Raghuvar Bimal Jasu Jo Dayaku Phala Chari

Budheeheen Tanu Jannike Sumiro Pavan Kumara

Bal Buddhi Vidya Dehoo Mohee Harahu Kalesh Vikaar

Chaupaii

Jai Hanuman gyan gun sagar, Jai Kapis tihun lok ujagar

Ram doot atulit bal dhama, Anjani putra Pavan sut nama

Mahabir vikram Bajrangi, Kumati nivar sumati Ke sangi

Kanchan varan viraj subesa, Kanan Kundal Kunchit Kesha

Hath Vajra Aur Dhwaja Viraje, Kaandhe moonj janeu saaje

Sankar suvan kesri Nandan, Tej prataap maha jag vandan

Vidyavaan guni ati chatur, Ram kaj karibe ko aatur

Prabhu charitra sunibe ko rasiya, Ram Lakhan Sita man Basiya

Sukshma roop dhari Siyahi dikhava, Vikat roop dhari lanka jarava

Bhim roop dhari asur sanhare, Ramachandra ke kaj sanvare

Laye Sanjivan Lakhan Jiyaye, Shri Raghuvir Harashi ur laye

Raghupati Kinhi bahut badai, Tum mama priya Bharat-hi-sam bhai

Sahas badan tumharo yash gaave , As kahi Shripati kanth lagaave

Sankadhik Brahmaadi Muneesa, Narad Sarad sahit Aheesa

Yam Kuber Dikpaal Jahan te, Kavi kovid kahi sake kahan te

Tum upkar Sugreevahin keenha, Ram milaye rajpad deenha

Tumhro mantra Vibheeshan maana, Lankeshwar Bhaye Sab jag jana

Yug sahasra yojan par Bhanu, Leelyo tahi madhur phal janu

Prabhu mudrika meli mukh mahee, Jaladhi langhi gaye achraj nahee

Durgam kaj jagat ke jete, Sugam anugraha tumhre tete

Ram duwaare tum rakhvare, Hot na agya binu paisare

Sab sukh lahai tumhari sarna, Tum rakshak kahu ko darna

Aapan tej samharo aapai, Teenon lok hank te kanpai

Bhoot pisaach Nikat nahin aavai, Mahavir jab naam sunavai

Nase rog harae sab peera, Japat nirantar Hanumat beera

Sankat se Hanuman chhudavai, Man Kram Vachan dhyan jo lavai

Sab par Ram tapasvee raja, Tin ke kaj sakal Tum saja

Aur manorath jo koi lavai, Soi amit jeevan phal pavai

Charon jug partap tumhara, Hai parsiddh jagat ujiyara

Sadhu Sant ke tum Rakhware, Asur nikandan Ram dulare

Ashta siddhi nav nidhi ke data, As var deen Janki mata

Ram rasayan tumhare pasa, Sada raho Raghupati ke dasa

Tumhare bhajan Ram ko pavai, Janam janam ke dukh bisraavai

Antkaal Raghuvar pur jayee, Jahan janam Hari Bhakt Kahayee

Aur Devta Chitt na dharahin, Hanumat sei sarv sukh karahin

Sankat kate mite sab peera, Jo sumirai Hanumat Balbeera

Jai Jai Jai Hanuman Gosain, Kripa Karahun Gurudev ki nayin

Jo shat bar path kare koi, Chhutahin bandi maha sukh hoi

Jo yeh padhe Hanuman Chalisa, Hoye siddhi saakhi Gaureesa

Tulsidas sada hari chera, Keejai Nath Hriday mahn dera

Doha

Pavan Tanay Sankat Harana Mangala Murati Roop

Ram Lakhan Sita Sahita Hriday Basahu Soor Bhoop
