vasudeva ghosa bole -- the author says; kori joda hat -- with folded hands;

jei gaura -- He who is Gaura; sei krsna -- is He who is Krsna;
sei jagannath -- is He who is Lord Jagannatha.

"He who is Gaura is He who is Krsna is He who is Jagannatha."

(It is He who has come. He has come!

Oh, from Vraja He has come to Nadiya. Accepting the mood and luster of Sri Radha,
He has come from Vraja to Nadiya. He has come!
Now Lord Govinda, the cowherd boy, has come as Lord Gauranga. He has come!)
