वन्दे बाणारिम् असमबाणारिम्

मारमणम् उमारमणं फणधरतल्पं फणाधराकल्पम्।
मुरमथनं पुरमथनं वन्दे बाणारिम् असमबाणारिम्॥

māramaṇam umāramaṇaṃ phaṇadharatalpaṃ phaṇādharākalpam।
muramathanaṃ puramathanaṃ vande bāṇārim asamabāṇārim॥

This verse was sung by one of the greatest saints, Shri Appayya Dikshita, who was an incarnation of Lord Shiva Himself. He sang this on His visit to Chidambaram with his relatives, when He had darshan of both Lord Nataraja and Lord Govindaraja.

Meaning:

I bow to the consort of  (Lakshmi), the consort of Umā; the one with a snake-bed and the one with snake ornaments; the one who defeated Mura and the one who defeated Pura (Tripura), the enemy of Bāṇāsura (Lord Krishna) and the enemy of the one with odd number of arrows (Manmatha, who has five arrows).

हे कृष्ण रक्षस्व माम्

कृष्णो रक्षतु नो जगत्त्रयगुरुः कृष्णं नमस्यामहम्
कृष्णेनामरशत्रवो विनिहताः कृष्णाय तस्मै नमः।
कृष्णादेव समुत्थितं जगदिदं कृष्णस्य दासोऽस्म्यहम्
कृष्णे तिष्ठति सर्वमेतदखिलं हे कृष्ण रक्षस्व माम्॥४४॥
kṛṣṇo rakṣatu no jagattrayaguruḥ kṛṣṇaṁ namasyāmaham
kṛṣṇenāmaraśatravo vinihatāḥ kṛṣṇāya tasmai namaḥ|
kṛṣṇādeva samutthitaṁ jagadidaṁ kṛṣṇasya dāso’smyaham
kṛṣṇe tiṣṭhati sarvametadakhilaṁ he kṛṣṇa rakṣasva mām||44||
May Krishna, the guru of the three worlds protect us. I bow to Krishna.
By Krishna, the enemies of the Devas (Asuras) were killed. Salutations to that Krishna.
From Krishna, has this entire world emanated. I am Krishna’s servant.
In Krishna stays this entire Universe. O Krishna, protect me!

This verse is from the Mukunda mala stotram. Note the use of all 8 cases of the noun कृष्ण , much like the Ramaraksha stotram

दीपज्योतिर्नमोऽस्तु ते

शुभं करोति कल्याणम् आरोग्यं धनसम्पदः।
शत्रुबुद्धिविनाशाय दीपज्योतिर्नमोऽस्तु ते॥
śubhaṁ karoti kalyāṇam ārogyaṁ dhanasampadaḥ|
śatrubuddhivināśāya dīpajyotirnamo’stu te||
Bestows auspiciousness , good fortune, health,
Destroyer of evil thoughts (ignorance?) — Salutations to the light of the lamp

It is common to recite this shloka while lighting the lamp…

These wonderful verses describe the beauty of Shri Rukmini Devi, as She stepped out of the Ambika temple,
and pushing away the strands of her curly hair, glanced at the Lord, described as Achyuta, because He never fails His devotees
(Shri Rukmini Devi in this case, who completely surrendered unto Him, requesting Him to marry Her).
The Lord then lifted Shri Rukmini Devi onto His chariot, and made away for Dwaraka

—śrīmadbhāgavate navamaskandhe daśamo’dhyāyaḥ

Who, for the sake of [keeping the promise of] His father, giving up the kingdom, wandered from forest to forest [with His beloved wife (Mother Sita)] on His Lotus feet, which were so soft to even not be able to bear the touch of Sita’s palm, and whose fatigue was relieved by being accompanied by the King of Monkeys (Hanuman/Sugriva) and His younger brother [Lakshmana].
Having disfigured Shurpanakha and separated from His Wife, in His anger He raised His eyebrows frightening the ocean; constructed a bridge over the ocean, killing wicked persons [like Ravana] as though devouring a forest like a fire, the King of Ayodha; may He deign to protect us!

Pardon the ugly translation; it is impossible to retain the beauty of Sanskrit!

What a wonderful one shloka rendition of Ramayana by Shuka Maharshi!!!

O tongue, praise the glories of Lord Kesava. O mind, worship the enemy of Mura. O hands, serve the Lord of Sri. O ears, hear the topics of Lord Acyuta. O eyes, gaze upon Sri Krishna. O feet, go to the temple of Lord Hari. O nose, smell the tulasi buds on Lord Mukunda’s feet. O head, bow down to Lord Adhokshaja.
