Rasika dasi sings "Radhika Stava", a Sanskrit poem by Srila Rupa Goswami from his book Stavamala.
rādhe jaya jaya mādhava-dayite
karuṇāḿ kuru mayi karuṇā-bharite
O Srimati Radhika! O beloved of Madhava! O You whose glories are sung by the young maidens of Gokula-mandala! All glories unto You! All glories unto You!
From the effulgence of the tips of Your toes to the top of Your head, Your artistic dress and entire appearance increase Damodara's loving attachment for You! O queen of the forest of Vrindavana! O Pleasure garden of Sri Hari!
Just As the moon was produced from the churning of the Milk Ocean, You have arisen like the new moon from the ocean of Vrsabhanu Maharaja's affection for You. O dearmost friend of Lalita! O You who have captivated the heart of your intimate sakhi Vishaka with Your charming qualities of friendship, kindness and loyalty to Krsna!
O all compassionate one! Even naisthika-brahmacharis like Sanaka and Sanatana meditate on Your transcendental qualities and character. O Sri Radha! Bestow Your kindness upon me!
