The lyrics and translation are taken from wikipedia…….

वैष्णव जन तो तेने कहिये जे पीड पराई जाणे रे,

पर दु:खे उपकार करे तोये मन अभिमान न आणे रे,

सकल लोकमां सहुने वंदे निंदा न करे केनी रे,

वाच काछ मन निश्चल राखे धन धन जननी तेनी रे,

समदृष्टि ने तृष्णा त्यागी, परस्त्री जेने मात रे,

जिह्वा थकी असत्य न बोले,परधन नव झाले हाथ रे,

मोह माया व्यापे नहि जेने,दृढ़ वैराग्य जेना मनमां रे,

रामनाम शुं ताली रे लागी,सकल तीरथ तेना तनमां रे,

वणलोभी ने कपटरहित छे,काम क्रोध निवार्या रे,

भणे नरसैयॊ तेनु दरसन करतां,कुल एकोतेर तार्या रे ॥

English Translation……

He who understands the pain of others is one of God’s own.

Helping others in sorrow does not reduce his humility.

This person respects all people in the world,

and does not condemn or criticize anyone.

He is pure in speech, deed and thought.

His mother is blessed indeed!

He is equanimous and has given up all desires.

To him, other women are [equivalent to] mothers.

He never speaks the untruth, not even if his tongue is tired.

He does not covet others’ wealth.

Delusion and attachment do not affect him,

his mind is firm in detachment.

He is ever engrossed in God’s name and meditation,

and he embodies all places of pilgrimage.

Such a person has no greed and deceit.

He has overcome lust and anger.

Narsi says: Such a person is worthy of worship,

and alone elevates his entire race.
