vishwaa– universe in his hands.
sadrasham –He whose vision exceeds
gagana– beyond all the skies
varanam — He whose color and visage is
megha– changeable like the clouds
shubh– he who is filled with goodness
aangam– in every part of his body.

I sing praise to the Lord Vishnu.
kaantam — He who is the husband
lakshmi– of the goddess of wealth
He whose eyes (nayanam) are surreal
kamala– like a lotus flower
agamyam– he who yogis yearn to reach
dhyaana– through meditation

I sing praises (vande-) to the Lord Vishnu (-vishnum)
He who removes (-haram) all our fears (-bhaya)
bhava– due to our inborn nature
And he who is the master (-naatham) of the
entire (-sarva) universe and creation (-lokaika).
