Ambe tu hai Jagdambe Kali jai Durge khappar waali,
Tere hi gun gaye Bharti
O Maiya ham sab utare teri aarti.
Mata tere bhakt jano par bhin pari hai bhari
Danav dal par tut pano ma karke singh savari.
Sau sau singho se balshali asht bhujao waali
Dukhiyon ke dhukh ko nivarati
O Maiya ham sab utare teri aarti.
Ma bete ka hai es jag me bada hi nirmal nata
Put kapoot sune hai par na Mata suni kumata
Sab par karuna barsane waali amrit barsane waali.
Dukhiyon ke dhukh ko nivarati
O Maiya ham sab utare teri aarti.
Nahi mangate dhan aur daulat na chandi na sona
Ham to mange Ma tere man men ek chhota sa kona
Sabaki bigani banane waali laj bachane waali.
Satiyon ke sat ko savarati
O Maiya ham sab utare teri aarti.
