Translation:
OM! Adorned with Lakshmi, all pervading Lord Narasimha How shall I praise you, thy greatness and prowess Thy nails are dazzling like the Vajra of Indra Which smashed the elephantine mountains,  the demons Thy nails wipe enemies like lust and erase ignorance They are ideal for the penance of gods I eulogise thy nails O "Lord Narasimha" Protect the righteous and destroy our   enemies.

Translation:
I delved deep into space and time; Vedas, Shastras and Puranas I couldn't find matter better than thee for songs and prayers The taste of thy name is unique, its eight RASA Oh Lord of Lakshmi, the ultimate Reality, I chant thy merits When furious, a wink of thy right eye emits fire of Pralaya  in that fire gods like Brahma, Rudra and Indra burn like moths You are the creator, protector and  estroyer, the Omnipotent You are Omniscient, Omnipresent; I remain thy proud Bhakta.
