Gangastothram

वरमिहे नीरे कमटो मीनः किं वा तीरे शरटः क्षीणः | 

अथवा श्वपचो मलिनो दीनः तव न हि  दूरे नृपतिकुलीनः || 

Varmiha neere kamato meenah kim vaa teere sharatah ksheenah|

Athava shwapacho malino deenah tav nahi doore nrupatikuleenah ||

जै  जै  गङ्गे  जै  हर  गङ्गे |  जै  जै  गङ्गे  जै  हर गङ्गे  ||

Jai Jai Gange Jai Har Gange|  Jai Jai Gange Jai Har Gange || 

Rather a fish or a turtle in Thy waters, a tiny lizard on Thy bank, would I be, even a shunned and hated outcaste, living but a mile from Thy sacred stream O Ganga, than the proudest emperor afar from Thee ||
