“श्री रामचन्द्र कृपालु भजुमन, हरण भवभय दारुणं, नव कंज लोचन कंज मुख, कर कंज पद कंजारुणं,” (Sri Ramachandra Kripalu Bhajuman, Haran Bhavabhay Darunam, Nav Kanj Lochan Kanj Mukha, Kar Kanj Pad Kanjarunam) Prasad chants and then explains the meaning of these lines: “Oh my mind, remember constantly the merciful Lord Rama, who dispels all fears and whose eyes are as beautiful as half-open new lotus, his mouth, his hands, and his feet are also pink like the lotus flower.”

The religious hymn's second verse is then chanted by Prasad.

“कन्दर्प अगणित अमित छवि, नव नील नीरद सुन्दरं, पटपीत मानहुँ तडित रुचि शुचि, नोमि जनक सुतावरं,” (Kandarp Amit Chhavi, Nav Neel Neerad Sundaram, Patpit Manhun Tadit Ruchi, Shuchi Naumi Janak Sutavaram) sings Prasad, followed by its meaning: “His (Lord Rama) features as beautiful as the multitude of the Kamadeva, the God of love. His(Lord Rama) complexion is lovely as a light blue cloud. His yellow clothes are as dazzling as lightning. I bow in reverence of the virtuous bride-groom, Janaka’s daughter Sita.”

Goswami Tulsidas wrote the aarti "Shri Ramachandra Kripalu" or "Shri Ram Stuti." It was composed in a blend of Sanskrit and Awadhi languages in the sixteenth century. Lord Rama is praised in this prayer.
