रघुपति राघव राजाराम, पतित पावन सीताराम
सीताराम सीताराम, भज प्यारे तू सीताराम
ईश्वर अल्लाह तेरो नाम, सब को सन्मति दे भगवान
Raghupati Ragahav Raja Ram, Patita Pavana Sita Ram
Sita Ram Sita Ram, Bhaj Pyare Tu Sita Ram
Ishwara Allah Tere Nam, Saba Ko Sanmati De Bhagavan
Lord Rama, Chief of the house of Raghu, uplifters of those who have fallen,
(O divine couple) Sita and Rama, Beloved, praise Sita and Rama
God or Allah is your name, Lord, bless everyone with wisdom.
This is a popular bhajan (Hindu devotional song) of north India. It was popularised by Mahatma Gandhi, as it was one of his favourite bhajans.

Here's Pandit DV Paluskar rendering the traditional version of this bhajan.
I also liked Jai Uttal's version of Raghupati Raghava. This can be heard on-line on the Gandhiserve website. Click here - and choose the last item, "Jay Uttal, 03'04" under Raghupati Raghav Rajaram on the left side of the web-page.
