वृक्षवल्ली आम्हा सोयरे वनचरें | पक्षीही सुस्वरें आळविती ||


अमृताचीं फळें

अमृताचीं फळें अमृताची वेली ।
तेचि पुढें चाली बीजाची ही ॥१॥

ऐसियांचा संग देइ नारायणा ।
बोलावा वचना जयांचिया ॥२॥

उत्तम सेवन सितळ कंठासी ।
पुष्टी कांती तैसी दिसे वरी ॥३॥

तुका ह्मणे तैसें होइजेत संगें ।
वास लागे अंगें चंदनाच्या ॥४॥

चला पंढरीसी जाऊं

चला पंढरीसी जाऊं ।
रखमादेवीवरा पाहूं ॥१॥

डोळे निवतील कान ।
मना तेथें समाधान ॥२॥

संता महंता होतील भेटी ।
आनंदे नाचों वाळवंटी ॥३॥

तें तीर्थांचे माहेर ।
सर्व सुखाचें भांडार ॥४॥

जन्म नाही रे आणीक ।
तुका ह्मणे माझी भाक ॥५॥

नवविधा भक्ती केली सायास | तेंचि पूर्ण झाले नव मास ||

कनकाईचें भाग्य विशेष | विष्णुभक्त उदरासी आला किं ||
