This is one of the many songs I learnt from my Father. He sings this stotra with so much devotion during Shri Krishna Janmashtami. I can still feel and listen to my Father singing this every year. I am going to record the same and also post it in youtube when I visit him soon. Until than, here are the lyrics in English for this famous stotra written by Shri Vadiraja Thirtharu on Lord Krishna of Udupi.

Palayachyutha palayajitha palaya kamalalaya,
Leelaya drutha bhoodharamburuhodhra swajanodhara ||pa||

Madhwa manasa padma bhanu samam smara prathimam(sam) smara
Snighdha nirmala seethe kanthila sanmukham karunonmukham
Hrudhya kambhu samana kandharamakshayam durithakshayam
Snigdha samsthutha roupya peeta kruthalayam harimalayam ||1||

Angadhadhi sushobhi pani yugena samkshubhithainasam
Thunga malya manindra hara sarorasam khala nerasam
Mangalapradha manda dhahama virajitham bhajathajitham
Tham grena vara roupya peeta kruthalayam harimalayam ||2||

Peena ramya thanudharam bhaja hey mana shubha hey mana
Svanubhava nidharsanaya disantha mardhisu santhamam
Aanathosmi nijarjuna priya sadhakam khalabhadhakam
Heenathojijjatharaoupya peeta kruthalayam harimalayam ||3||

Hema malika kinkini malikarasanchitham thamavanchitham
Rathna kanchana chithra vasthrakateem Ghana prabhaya ghanam
Kamra naga karopa moru mana mayam shubhadhee mayam
Naumyaham vara roupya peeta kruthalayam harimalayam ||4||

Vrutha janu manojna janga mamohadham paramohadham
Rathna kalpa nakhathwisha hrutha hruththamasthathimuthamam
Prathyaham rachitharchanam ramaya swayaagathaya swayam
Chitha chinthya roupya peeta kruthalayam harimalayam ||5||

Charu pada saroja yugma rucha amarochayachamaro
Dhara mordh a jabhara mandala ranchakam kali bhanchakam
Veerathothuchitha bhooshanam vara noopuam swathanuparam

Sushka vadhi mano aathidhoora tharagamothsava dagamam
Sath kaveendra vacho vilasa mahodhaam maahithodhayam
Lakshyami yatheeswarai krutha poojanam guna bhajanam
Ddhikruthopama roupya peeta kruthalayam harimalayam ||7||

Tharakopama charu dheepa chayanthare gatha chinthare
