Sri Sankatmochan Hanuman Ashtak

बाल समय रवि भक्षी लियो तब,

तीनहुं लोक भयो अंधियारों I

ताहि सों त्रास भयो जग को,

यह संकट काहु सों जात न टारो I

देवन आनि करी बिनती तब,

छाड़ी दियो रवि कष्ट निवारो I

को नहीं जानत है जग में कपि,

संकटमोचन नाम तिहारो I को – १

Baal samai ravi bhakshi liyo tab, teenahu loka bhayo andhiyaro |

Taahi so traas bhayo jag ko, yah sankat kaahu so jaat na taaro |

Dewan aani kari bintee tab, chaadhi diyo ravi kasht niwaaro ||

Ko nahin jaanat hai jag mein kapi sankat mochan naam tihaaro||1||

बालि की त्रास कपीस बसैं गिरि,

कैद्विज रूप लिवाय महाप्रभु,

सो तुम दास के सोक निवारो I को – २

Baali ki traas kapees basai giri, jaat mahaaprabhu panth nihaaro |

Chownki mahaa muni saap diyo tab chahiy kaun bichaar bichaaro |

Ko nahin jaanat hai jag mein kapi sankat mochan naam tiharo ||2||
