Annamayya Keerthana – Hari Naamamu Kadu Lyrics in English:
Hari Naamamu Kadu ananda karamu
Marugavo marugavo marugavo manasa
Nalinakshuni shri naamamu
Kali dosha haramu kaivalyamu
Phalasaaramu bahu bandha mochanamu
Thalachavo thalachavo thalachavo manasa
Nagadharu naamamu naraka haranamu
Jagadeka hithamu sammathamu
Saguna nirgunamu sakshathkaramu
Pogadavo pogadavo pogadavo manasa
Kadagi Sri Venkata pathi naamamu
Badi badi ne sampathkaramu
Adiyalambila nathi sukha moolamu
Thadavavo thadavavo thadavavo manasa
