Here you will find the Poem Nanda Beholds Krishna's Face of poet Sant Surdas

Nanda Beholds Krishna's Face

Parted nightlong from his beloved child 
Nanda could no longer restrain himself 
and lifting from his face the coverlet gazed upon it; 
no more the night was oppressive: 
the gods it seemed had churned the sea, 
and through its foam the moon was seen resplendent in the sky."

Says Suradasa, the cowherd lads and maids learning that their beloved Krishna was awake forgot all else and ran to his bedside.
