Yaśodā is swinging Kṛṣṇa in a baby-swing. She moves the baby-swing and coaxes Kṛṣṇa with voice out of affection. She sings whichever lullaby comes to Her mind.
[She sings] ‘O Nidrā (sleep)! Come in the eyes of my baby. Why don’t you come and make Him asleep? Why don’t you come running when Kānhā (Kṛṣṇa) is calling you?’
Sometimes Hari (Kṛṣṇa) closes His eyelids and sometimes He parts His lips. Knowing that Kṛṣṇa is sleeping, Yaśodā remains quiet and asks others to remain quiet too.
And when Hari woke up during this time, Yaśomatī (Yaśodā) sings in a melodious voice. O Sūradāsa! This pleasure [of having Lord as a baby], which is unachievable for great sages, is available to the consort of Nanda (Yaśodā).
