prahladahlada dayine,
hiranyakasipor vaksah,
sila tanka nakhalaye

Narasimha Pranama Prayer Meaning:

I offer my obeisances to Lord Narasimha, who gives joy to Prahlada Maharaja and whose nails are like chisels on the stone like chest of the demon Hiranyakasipu.

yato yato yami tato nrsimhah,

Narasimha Pranama Prayer Meaning:

Lord Nrsimha is here and also there. Wherever I go Lord Narasimha is there. He is in the heart and is outside as well. I surrender to Lord Narasimha, the origin of all things and the supreme refuge.

Dasavatara Stotra by Jayadeva:

tava kara kamala vare nakham adbhuta srngam,
dalita hiranyakasipu tanu bhrngam,
kesava dhrta narahari rūpa jaya jagadisa hare

Dasavatara Stotram Meaning:

O Kesava! O Lord of the universe. O Hari, who have assumed the form of half man, half lion! All glories to You! Just as one can easily crush a wasp between one’s fingernails, so in the same way the body of the wasp like demon Hiranyakasipu has been ripped apart by the wonderful pointed nails on your beautiful lotus hands.(from the Dasavatara stotra composed by Jayadeva)

Kamasikha Astakam by Vedanta Desika:

tvayi raksati raksakaih kimanyaih,
tvayi caraksati raksakaih kimanyaih ।
iti niscita dhih srayami nityam,
nrhare vegavati tatasrayam tvam ॥ 8 ॥

DKamasikha Astakam Meaning:

O Kamasikha Narasimha! you are sarva sakthan. When you are resolved to protect some one, where is the need to seek the protection of anyone else? When you are resolved not to protect some one, which other person is capable of protecting us?. There is no one. Knowing this fundamental truth, I have resolved to offer my saranagati at your lotus feet alone that rest at the banks of Vegavati river.

Divya Prabandham:

aḍi aḍi agam karaindhu isai
paḍip paḍik kannir malgi engum
naḍi naḍi narasinga endru,
vaḍi vaḍum ivval nuthale!

Divya Prabandham Stotram Meaning:

I will dance and melt for you, within my heart, to see you, I will sing in praise of you with tears in joy, I will search for Narasimha and I am a householder who still searches to reach you (to attain Salvation).
