baala samaya rabi bhaxi liyo taba

tInahun loka bhayo andhiyaaro

taahi son trasa bhayo jaga ko

yaha sankata kaahu son jata na taro

devana aani kari binati taba

chhandi diyo rabi kashhta nivaaro

ko nahin jaanata hai jagamen kapi

sankatamochana nama tihaaro  

In the very childhood, when you O Hanuman!, devoured the rising Sun, darkness prevailed all throughout the universe. Consequently, the entire world got frightened and felt that the calamity could not be dispelled by anybody. When gods appeared and prayed, you released the Sun, thereby dispelling the distress of the world. O Hanuman! Who does not know in the world that you name dispels all stress!

 

baali ki traasa kapisa basai jiri

jaata mahaaprabhu pantha nihaaro

chaunki mahaa muni saapa diyo taba

chaahiya kauna vichaara vichaaro

kai dvija ruupa livaaya mahaaprabhu

so tuma daasa ke soka nihaaro

ko nahin jaanata hai jagamen kapi

sankatamochana nama tihaaro  

Frightened by Bali, Sugreeva was living on top of the hill, to which the former had no access because of the curse of a sage. One day not knowing that it was Lord Rama who was approaching the hill with his brother Laxmana, Sugreeva was perturbed and dispatched you O Hanuman, to ascertain who they were. Going to them in the guise of a Brahmin, you brought them to Sugreeva and helped Lord Rama rid Sugreeva of the trouble. O Hanuman! Who does not know in the world that you name dispels all stress!

angada ke sanga lena gaye siya

khoja kapIsa yaha vaina uchaaro

ko nahin jaanata hai jagamen kapi

sankatamochana nama tihaaro  

When Sugreeva commanded the monkeys, led by Angad to go in search of Sita, he warned them that the life of none would be spared, in case they returned without any news of Sita. When the party got tired after an intense search and was stranded by the seashore, you summoned up courage and flew to Lanka and brought news about Sita after meeting her, thus saving the lives of your companions who were immersed in despondency. O Hanuman! Who does not know in the world that you name dispels all stress!

chaahata sIya asoka son aagi sudai

prabhu mudrikaa soka nivaaro

ko nahin jaanata hai jagamen kapi

sankatamochana nama tihaaro  

Instructed by Ravana, when demonesses were troubling Sita in Ashokvana, it was you who through a dream made the demonness Trijata restrain others from doing so, by telling that Ravana’s end was near. Then you also killed a big demon. On account of Ravana’s harassment, when Sita asked the Ashoka tree to give her some fire for ending her life, it was you O Hanuman who dispelled her grief by giving her the ring of Lord Rama. O Hanuman! Who does not know in the world that you name dispels all stress!

baana lagyo ura lachhimana ke taba

achhimana ke tuma praana ubaaro

ko nahin jaanata hai jagamen kapi

sankatamochana nama tihaaro  

During the battle in Lanka, when Laxmana was struck by a deadly arrow discharged by Meghnaad, the son of Ravana and was lying unconscious, almost on the verge of death, it was you O Hanuman who brought the divine Physician Sushhena from Lanka, procured the life-saving herb ‘sanjivani’ from Drona Hill to revive Laxmana back to life. O Hanuman! Who does not know in the world that you name dispels all stress!

 

raavana juddha ajaana kiyo taba

naaga ki phansa sabai sira daro

bandhana kati sutrasa nivaaro

sankatamochana nama tihaaro  

When Ravana fought a fierce battle, managing to tie Lord Rama and his entire army in the noose of a magic snake, none could think of relief from this bondage O Hanuman. It was you who brought Garuda, the arch enemy of snakes and freed everyone from the deadly noose. O Hanuman! Who does not know in the world that you name dispels all stress!

bandhu sameta jabai ahiraavana lai

When Ahiravan secretly carried away Lord Rama and his brother Laxmana to the ‘patal-loka’ (nether-world), the demon consulted his friends and decided to sacrifice the life of the two divine brothers at the altar of his chosen Deity with due ceremony. But O Hanuman, it was you who reached there for the rescue of your Lord Rama and his brother, saving their life by killing Ahiravan and his army. O Hanuman! Who does not know in the world that you name dispels all stress!

begi haro hanumaana mahaaprabhu

jo kuchha sankata hoya hamaaro

ko nahin jaanata hai jagamen kapi

sankatamochana nama tihaaro  

O Great Warrior! You have accomplished many a task for the good of gods. Can there be any problem or distress that I am facing that you cannot dispel when you have even helped the gods? O Great Lord. I pray to you to quickly rid me of whatever distress I am suffering from. O Hanuman! Who does not know in the world that you name dispels all stress!

laala deha laalI lase arudhari lala languura

bajra deha daanava dalana jaya jaya kapi suura  

Glory! Glory! All glory to the valiant Hanuman who has a red body with crimson paste anointed over it, a red and heavy tail, whose physique is as sturdy as the thunderbolt and who is the destroyer of the demons.
