Krishna Bhajans Song During Janmashtami

Krishna bhajans sung in praise of the Lord are an essential part of the festival of Janmashtami. The letters “Ja” stand for "Japa" which means chanting God's name. So, the word “Bhajan” basically means “Japa”. These bhajans speak about the achievements of Lord Krishna. They are devotional hymns sung until midnight and provide a spiritual experience to the devotees of the Lord. 

Here are some popular Krishna bhajans sung during the Janmashtami.

1. Darshan Do Ghanshyam

Darashan do ghanashyam naath mori
Ankhiyan pyaasi re
Man mandir ki jyoti jagaado,
Ghat ghat basi re

Mandir mandir murat teri
Phir bhi naa dikhe surat teri
Yug bite naa aai milan ki
Puranamasi re

Dwaar dayaa kaa jab tu khole
Pancham sur mein gungaa bole
Andhaa dekhe langadaa chal kar
Pahunche kasi re

Paani pi kar pyaas bujhaun
Nainon ko kaise samajhaaun
Aankh michauli chhodo ab
Man ke basi re

Nibarl ke bal dhaan nidharn ke
Tum rakhwaale bhakt janon ke
Tere bhajan mein sab sukh paun
Mite udasi re

Naam jape par tujhe naa jaane
Unako bhi tu apanaa maane
Teri dayaa kaa ant nahin hai
He dukh nashi re

Aaj phaisalaa tere dwaar par
Meri jit hai teri haar par
Har jit hai teri main to
Charan upaasi re

Dwaar khadaa kab se matavaalaa
Maange tum se har tumhaari
Narasi ki ye binati sunalo
Bhakt vilaasi re
Laj naa lut jaaye prabhu teri
Naath karo naa dayaa mein deri
Tin lok chhod kar aao
Gangaa nivasi re

2. Darsh Do Mohe Girdhari

Darsh do mohe girdhari
More pranpriye krishna
More pyare girdhari,
Darsh do mohe
More pran chhootat jat

Main neech nirbal prani
Chahta jana chhodd duniya ka sath
Darsh do mohe
More pran chhootat jat

Moh maya ke is bhanwar se
Do mujhe ab ubhar
Darsh do mohe
More pran chhootat jat

Karm ki gathariya ho gayi bhari
Karo mera uddhar
Darsh do mohe
More pran chhootat jat

Sumiran kar tera antim kshan mein
Mujhe milega swarg ka dwar
Darsh do mohe
More pran chhootat jat

More pyare girdhari
Sun lo ab arz humari
Darsh de mohe
More pran chhootat jat

3. Khul Gaye Jail ke Tale

Jab janmain Shri Bhagwan jail darmyan murliya wale
khul gaye jail ke tale

Dewki ne pati ko jagaya tha sapne ka hal sunaya tha
le jao putra Yashoda ke karo hawale
khul gaye.........
Vasudev ji ki bedi tuti thi takdir Kans ki phuti thi
ho gaye mast sab so gaye pahare wale
khul gaye......
Vasudev ji chale agadi ko le kar ke Krishna Murari ko
pahunche Yamuna tat yamuna bhare ubare
khul gaye.....
Vasudev ji ne bhed na paya tha prabhu ji ne pair badhaya tha
phunche Yashoda ke nikat muraliya wale
khul gaye..........
Ghar ghar main batat badhai hai ham sabne khushiyan manai hai
pad gaye Kans raja ki jan ke lale
khul gaye jail ke tale
Jab janmain Shri Bhagwan jail darmayan muraliya wale
khul gaye jail ke tale

4. Rang Le Khudko, Murari Ke Rang

Rang le khudko, murari ke rang
Jeevan ke sab rang hain jhoote
Rang lo mohe
Apne rang mein murari.

Mrigtrishna ke is jaal se ab karo mukti humari,
Rang lo mohe
Apne rang mein murari.

Dukh-sukh, paap-punya hain aane jane.
Rang lo mohe
Apne rang mein murari
Mayajaal ke rang hai kacche, bas tohre naam ke pukke,
Rang lo mohe
Apne rang mein murari
Tohre naam se hoga is bhav sagar ka paar
Rang lo mohe
Apne rang main murari
