Here is beautiful song about Lord Gauranga from Prarthana by Shrilla Narottama dasa Thakura
Gauranga-nistha (Faith in Lord Chaitanya)
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.
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.
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.
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.
