Guru bhajan by Surdas, Druhn in charnan kero bharoso

दृढ़ इन चरनन केरो भरोसो, दृढ़ इन चरनन केरो

श्री वल्लभ नख चन्द्र छटा बिन, सब जग मांझ अंधेरो

साधन और नहीं या कलि में, जासो होत निबेरो

सूर कहा कहे दुविध आंधरो, बिना मोल को चेरो

Surdas and SrinathjiSurdas wrote this bhajan in Braj bhasha for his Guru, Mahaprabhu Vallabhacharya. Surdas was a blind poet and musician, one of the Asht sakhas of Sri Govardhan Nath ji (now at Nathdwara, near Udaipur) who was at Govardhan hill (near Vrindavan) during Surdas’s lifetime. Suradas breathed his last in Braj. This song speaks of his faith in the Guru and his teachings.

Khanjan Nayan is a beautiful biography of Surdas by Amrit Lal Nagar, a famous writer from Chowk in Lucknow.

Surdas bhajan lyrics, Sabse oonchi prem sagaai

सबसे ऊंची प्रेम सगाई

१. दुर्योधन के मेवा त्याग्यो, साग विदुर घर खाई

४. जूठे फल शबरी के खाये, बहु विधि स्वाद बताई

३. राजसूय यज्ञ युधिष्ठिर कीन्हा, तामे जूठ उठाई

५. प्रेम के बस पारथ रथ हांक्यो, भूल गये ठकुराई

६. ऐसी प्रीत बढ़ी वृन्दावन, गोपियन नाच नचाई

२. प्रेम के बस नृप सेवा कीन्हीं, आप बने हरि नाई

७. सूर क्रूर एहि लायक नाहीं, केहि लगो करहुं बड़ाई

Surdas was one of the Ashtsakha (8 friends of Krishna), appointed by Mahaprabhu Vallabhacharya ji to perform Raga seva to Sri Govardhan Nath ji (the Krishna deity, uncovered by Mahaprabhu ji on Govardhan Hill near Vrindavan, Mathura.
