Ghalin Lotangan Ganpati bhajan words in Marathi

Most people when worshiping a deity do so with an aarti (आरती). By performing an aarti, one is expressing one's devotion to God. The aarti is basically consisting of a lighted wick soaked in oil placed in a diya & kept on a plate, the plate being then rotated in a clockwise direction around the deity. This aarti is considered an important part of a puja to a Hindu God or Goddess. The devotional words which are said while doing an aarti may vary from one God/Goddess to another. However, there is one bhajan (भजन) [bhajan means devotional song] which is considered to be mandatory after performing an aarti of Lord Ganesha. This bhajan is 'Ghalin Lotangan' (घालीन लोटांगण). In fact, this bhajan is also routinely recited after any aarti.

आरत्या संपताक्षणी म्हणावयाचे भजन 

घालीन लोटांगण

घालीन लोटांगण, वंदीन चरण । 
डोळ्यांनी पाहीन रुप तुझें ।
प्रेमें आलिंगन, आनंदे पूजिन ।
भावें ओवाळीन म्हणे नामा ।।१।।
त्वमेव माता च पिता त्वमेव।
त्वमेव बंधुक्ष्च सखा त्वमेव ।
त्वमेव विध्या द्रविणं त्वमेव ।
त्वमेव सर्वं मम देवदेव।।२।।
कायेन वाचा मनसेंद्रीयेव्रा, बुद्धयात्मना वा प्रकृतिस्वभावात ।
करोमि यध्य्त सकलं परस्मे, नारायणायेति समर्पयामि ।।३।।
अच्युतं केशवं रामनारायणं कृष्णदामोदरं वासुदेवं हरिम।
श्रीधरं माधवं गोपिकावल्लभं, जानकीनायकं रामचंद्र भजे ।।४।।

हरे राम हर राम, राम राम हरे हरे ।
हरे कृष्ण हरे कृष्ण, कृष्ण कृष्ण हरे हरे ।
