Simple Translation (based on puththUr krishNamAchArya swAmy’s thamizh translation)

Oh one with unlimited arms! Oh one who has the whole universe as your body! I desire to see you as before, as wearing a crown, holding a mace and holding the chakra (disc) in your hand; please assume the four-handed divine form as before.

Rendering based on ALkoNdavilli gOvindhAchArya swAmy’s English translation of gIthA bhAshyam

Fain would I see You in that four-armed Form, O many-Armed! Be You, O Kosmic Form! That, with crown and club and discus in the hand.’

That same old Form do I wish to see, —the Form with diadem, mace and wheel borne by You in Your hands,— the Form with four arms. Assume that old Form of four arms, O (now) many-Armed! O (now) Universal Form!
