Karuniso Ranga karuniso Krishna
Karuniso Ranga karuniso
Hagalu irulu ninna samrane mareyadanthe

Meaning – Have comapssion for me O Ranga Have compassion for me O Krishna
Have comapssion for me O Ranga
That I never forget to remember you night and day

Rukmangadanante vrathava naanariye
Shuka muniyanthe struthisalu ariye
Bakavairiyenthe dhyanava maadalariye
Devakiyanthe muddisaloo ariye Ranga

Meaning – I do not know how to perform religious observances like King Rukmaangada
Nor do I know how to praise you like sage Shuka
I do not know how to contemplate on you like the enemy of Baka ( Bhimasen ) – Lord Vayu is believed to have incarnated thrice on earth to serve Lord Vishnu in his various forms – firstly as Hanuman to serve Lord Rama, then as Bhima to serve Lord Krishna, and thirdly as Ananda Titrtha (Madhavacharya) to serve Lord Vishnu in this age of Kali. Madhavacharya is held up as an example of how to indulge in the contemplation / meditation of the supreme Lord.
Nor can I hold you in my arms, adore you and shower unadulterated love like Devaki

Kariyalu airy kari raajanante

Meaning – I do not know how to carry you and wander around like Garuda ( Vishnu’s vehicle )
Nor do I know how to call out to you like the king of elephants  ( Gajendra moksha )
I  do not know how to be a servant like Sri Hanuman
Nor do I know how to serve you and make you happy like Shri Lakshmi

Baliyante daanava kodalu ariyeno
Bhakthi cheluvanariye Prahalladanante
Varisalu ariye Arjunanante sakhanaagi
Salaho Devara Deva Salaho Devara Deva
Purandara Vittala Sri Purandara Vittala

Meaning – I do not know how to be charitable like Mahabali Chakravarti ( Vaman avatar )
Nor do I have persistent/unshaken devotion like Prahalaad
Unlike Arjuna, I do not know how to cherish you as a friend
God of all Gods please help me/ advice me ( despite all my limitations )
Purandara Vitthala have compassion for me
