தருமையரு   ளாதீனத்   தலைவர்   என்னும்
     தனிச்சிறப்பால்  சைவத்தை   ஆண்ட வேந்தர்
ஒருமையுடன்  திருவருளை  உலகத்   தார்க்கே
      உரையாலும்  செயலாலும்  வழங்கி  வாழ்ந்தார்,
குருமுதல்வர்   எனநமக்கே  ஆசி   நல்கி
      குவலயத்தில்  சைவநெறிக்  கொடியை  ஏற்றித்
திருநெறிய   தமிழ்வளர்த்த  சீர்வ   ளர்சீர்
        தேசிகரின்  திருவடியே  சிந்திப்  போமே!
In English
By the fact of his being the head of Dharmapura Adhinam
         He ruled over the SAIVITE branch of Hinduism
God’s greatness  to the people of the faith with focus
        He his actions and words graced the faithful and lived.
As chief Guru He blessed us gracefully
