Man Tarpat Hari Darshan Ko Aaj
(Film : Baiju Bawra)
Man tarpat hari darshan ko aaj
More tum bin bigare sagare kaaj
Vinati karat hoon rakhiyo laaj
Tumhare dwar ka main hoon jogi,
Hamari or nazar kab hogi,
Sun more vyakul man ka baaj
Bin guru gyan kahan se paoon,
Dijo daan hari gun gaoon,
Sab gunijan pe tumhara raaj,
