I found this beautiful prayer offered to Jagannatha das Babaji ,I am not sure of the author but it appears to have been composed during the presence of Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Prabhupada


 

Shri-Shrila-Jagannathashöakam

 

          rupanuganam pravaram sudantam

          shri-gauracandra-priya-bhakta-rajam |

          shri-radhika-madhava-citta-ramam

          vande jagannatha-vibhum varenyam ||1||

 

I venerate great Jagannath, the best of the Vaishnavas, the foremost of the followers of Shrila Rupa Goswami, the king of Gauranga’s dear devotees, who takes pleasure in remembering Radhika and Madhava.

 

          shri-surya-kundashrayinah kripalor

          vidvad-vara-shri-madhusudanasya |

          preshöha-svarupena virajamanam

          vande jagannatha-vibhum varenyam ||2||

 

I venerate great Jagannath, the best of the Vaishnavas, who was the dearest associate of the most merciful resident of Surya Kund, Shri Madhusudana Das Babaji.

 

          shridhama-vrindavana-vasi-bhakta-

          nakshatra-raji-sthita-soma-tulyam |

          ekanta-namashrita-sangha-palam

          vande Jagannath-vibhum varenyam ||3||

 

I venerate great Jagannath, the best of the Vaishnavas, who stood out from the rest of the devotees of Shri Dham Vrindavan just like the moon amongst the stars. He was the protector of the association of Vaishnavas who are uniquely dedicated to the chanting of the Holy Name.

 

          vairagya-vidya-hari-bhakti-diptam

          daurjanya-kapaöya-vibheda-vajram |

          shraddha-yuteshv adara-vrittimantam

          vande Jagannath-vibhum varenyam ||4||

I venerate great Jagannath, the best of the Vaishnavas, aglow with devotion to Hari combined with knowledge and renunciation, a veritable thunderbolt to those who are wicked and pretenders and ever affectionate to the faithful.

 

          samprerito gaura-sudhamshuna yash

          cakre hi taj-janma-griha-prakasham |

          devair nutam vaishnava-sarvabhaumam

          vande Jagannath-vibhum varenyam ||5||

 

I venerate great Jagannath, the best of the Vaishnavas, who was directed by Gauranga himself to point out the place where he appeared on this earth. He is worshiped by even the gods as the sovereign of the Vaishnavas on this earth.

 

          sancarya sarvam nija-shakti-rashim

          yo bhakti-purne ca vinoda-deve

          tene jagatyam hari-nama-vanyam

          vande Jagannath-vibhum varenyam ||6||

 

I venerate great Jagannath, the best of the Vaishnavas, who infused the devoted Bhaktivinoda Thakur with all of his own potency, and through him unleashed the flood of Harinama throughout the universe.

 

          shri-nama-dhamnoh prabala-pracare

          ihaparam prema-rasabdhi-magnam |

          shri-yoga-piöhe krita-nritya-bhangam

          vande Jagannath-vibhum varenyam ||7||

 

I venerate great Jagannath, the best of the Vaishnavas, always immersed in the ocean of sacred rapture and engaged in forcefully preaching the Holy Names and the Lord’s abode. He danced ecstatically in the Yoga-piöha at Mayapur.

 

          mayapura-dhamani sakta-cittam

          gaura-prakashena ca moda-yuktam |

          shri-nama-ganair galad-ashru-netram

          vande Jagannath-vibhum varenyam ||8||

 

I venerate great Jagannath, the best of the Vaishnavas, who is totally attached to the Holy Dhama of Mayapur, who is joyful from the vision of Gauranga, whose eyes flow with tears from the chanting of the Holy Names.

 

                   he deva he vaishnava-sarvabhauma

                   bhaktya parabhuta-mahendra-dhishnya |

                   tvad-gatra-vistara-kritim supunyam

                   vande muhur bhaktivinoda-dharam ||9||

 

O Lord! O sovereign of the Vaishnavas! Through your devotion you have overcome even the heavens. I constantly venerate the most pious line of Bhaktivinoda Thakur which has developed from your body and works.

 
May Jagannatha das Babji bless us with attachment for suddha nama and bless us to daily chant one or 2 lakhs of the Mahamantra 
 
your humble servant
