Here is beautiful song about Lord Gauranga from Prarthana by Shrilla Narottama dasa Thakura

 

Gauranga-nistha (Faith in Lord Chaitanya)

 

    1

  are bhai bhaja mora gauranga-carana

na bhajiya mainu duhkhe     dubi grha-bisa-kupe

       dagdha kaila e panca parana

 

O brother, please worship the lotus feet of Lord Gauranga.  I have not worshipped them, but instead have dived into the poisonous well of materialistic household-life, and as a result my five life-airs are burning with the poison of material life.

 

2

tapa-traya-bisanale     ahar-nisi hiya jwale

           deha sada haya acetana

      ripu-basa indriya haila     gora-pada pasabila

            bimukha haila hena dhana

 

Day and night I burn in the poisonous fire of the threefold miseries of material life, and as a result I faint again and again.  My senses are overwhelmed by lust, greed, and numberless other enemies, and I am averse to the great treasure that is the lotus feet of Lord Gauranga.

 

3

hena gaura dayamaya     chadi saba laja-bhaya

            kaya mane laha re sarana

      parama durmati chila      tare gora uddharila

            tara haila patita-pabana

 

O brother, give up all fear and shyness, and take shelter of merciful Lord Gauranga.  Lord Gauranga rescues those who are most wicked at heart, and therefore He is known as Patita-pavana, the saviour of the fallen.

 

4

 gora dwija-nata-raje     bandhaha hrdaya-majhe

            ki karibe samsara-samana

      narottama dasa kahe     agora-sama keha nahe

            na bhajite deya prema-dhana

 

If you place Lord Gauranga, the brahmana king of dancers, within your heart, then what will death be able to do to you?  Narottama dasa says: There is no one equal to Lord Gauranga.  Even if one will not become His devotee, still Lord Gauranga will freely give him the treasure of love for Krishna.
