Rasika dasi sings "Radhika Stava", a Sanskrit poem by Srila Rupa Goswami from his book Stavamala.
rādhe jaya jaya mādhava-dayite
karuṇāḿ kuru mayi karuṇā-bharite
O Srimati Radhika! O beloved of Madhava! O You whose glories are sung by the young maidens of Gokula-mandala! All glories unto You! All glories unto You!
From the effulgence of the tips of Your toes to the top of Your head, Your artistic dress and entire appearance increase Damodara's loving attachment for You! O queen of the forest of Vrindavana! O Pleasure garden of Sri Hari!
Just As the moon was produced from the churning of the Milk Ocean, You have arisen like the new moon from the ocean of Vrsabhanu Maharaja's affection for You. O dearmost friend of Lalita! O You who have captivated the heart of your intimate sakhi Vishaka with Your charming qualities of friendship, kindness and loyalty to Krsna!
O all compassionate one! Even naisthika-brahmacharis like Sanaka and Sanatana meditate on Your transcendental qualities and character. O Sri Radha! Bestow Your kindness upon me!

Sri Radha Stothram by Yamuna devi dasi
Jaya Gurudeva! Jaya Radha!
Shri Raadhaa Stotram
From a conversation between Shrila Brahmaa and Shrila Naarada in the Brahmanda Purana
grihe raadhaa vane raadhaa raadhaa prishthe purah sthitaa
yatra yatra sthita raadhaa raadhaaivaaraadhyate mayaa (1)
Radha is in the home, Radha is in the forest, and She is both behind and before me. I worship the all-pervading Radhaji, wherever She is present.
jihvaa raadhaa shrutau raadhaa raadhaa netre hridi sthitaa
sarvaanga-vyaapini raadhaa radhaaivaaraadhyate mayaa (2)
Radha is on my tongue, Radha is in my ears, Radha is in my eyes and inside my heart. I worship Radhaji, who is within the bodies of all.
pujaa raadhaa japo raadhaa raadhikaa chaabhivandane
smritau raadhaa shiro raadhaa radhaaivaaraadhyate mayaa (3)
Radha is in my puja, Radha is in my mantra-japa, Radha is in my prayers, Radha is in my memory, and Radha is in my head - I worship that Radhaji.
gane raadhaa gune raadhaa radhikaa bhojane gatau
raatrau raadhaa divaa raadhaa raadhaaivaaraadhyate mayaa (4)
Whenever I sing, I sing about the qualities of Radha, everything I eat is Radha's prasada, wherever I go I always remember Radha, Radha is in the night, Radha is in the day - I worship that Radhaji.
maadhurye madhura raadhaa mahattve raadhikaa guruh
saundarye sundari raadhaa raadhaaivaaraadhyate mayaa (5)
Radha is the sweetness within anything that is sweet; of anything that is important, Radha is the most important; and of everything that is beautiful, Radha is the supreme beauty - I worship that Radhaji.
raadhaa rasa-sudhaa-sindhu raadhaa saubhaagya-manjari
raadhaa vrajaangaNaa-mukhyaa raadhaaivaaraadhyate mayaa (6)
Radha is an ocean of nectarean rasa, Radha is the flower-bud of all good fortune, Radha is the foremost gopi of Vraja - I worship that Radhaji.
raadhaa padmaanana padmaa padmodbhava-supujitaa
padme vivechita raadhaa raadhaaivaaraadhyate mayaa (7)
Because Radha's face is like a spotless lotus flower, She is known as Padma. She is worshiped by Brahma who appeared on the lotus emanating from Vishnu's navel, and when She was first discovered by Her father, She was resting upon a lotus - I worship that Radhaji.
raadhaa krishNaatmikaa nityam krishNo raadhaatmako dhruvam
vrindaavaneshvari raadhaa raadhaaivaaraadhyate mayaa (8)
Radha is eternally immersed in Shri Krishna, Krishna is certainly always immersed in Radha, and Radha is the queen of Vrindavana - I worship that Radhaji.
jihvaagre raadhika-naama netraagre raadhikaa-tanuh
karne cha raadhikaa-kirtir maanase raadhikaa sadaa (9)
Radha's name is on the tip of my tongue, Radha's beautiful form is always before my eyes, descriptions of Radha's fame are always in my ears, and Radha always resides in my mind.
krishNena pathitam stotram raadhikaa-pritaye param
yah pathet praayato nityam raadhaa-krishNaantigo bhavet (10)
Whoever regularly recites with great care this prayer spoken by Shri Krishna will attain loving service for the feet of Shri Radha-Krishna.
aaraadhita-manah krishNo raadhaaraadhita-maanasah
krishNaakrishta-mana raadhaa raadhaa-krishNeti yah pathet (11)
Shrimati Radhika worships Shri Krishna in Her heart and mind, and Krishna worships Shrimati Radhika in His heart and mind; Shri Krishna attracts Radhika's heart and mind, and Radhika attracts Krishna's heart and mind. Whoever lovingly recites this prayer will become similarly attracted to the lotus feet of Shri Radha-Krishna.
