This is Actually the main Aarti for Diwali – prayer to Goddess Lakshmi. Here are the lyrics (which may be a bit different from the rendition)

Jai Lakshmi mata, maiyya jai Lakshmi maata,
Tumko nishdin sevat, Har Vishnu vidhaata.
Jai Lakshmi Mata ….

Brahmani, Rudrani Kamala, tum hi hai jagmaata,
Surya chandrama dhyyavat, Narad rishi gata.
Jai Lakshmi Mata ….

Durga roop niranjani, sukh sampatti daata,
Jo koi tum ko dhyyavat, riddhi-siddhi dhan paata.
Jai Lakshmi Mata ….

Tum paataal Nivaasini, tum hi shubh daata,
Karma prabhav prakashak, bhavnidhi se trata.
Jai Lakshmi Mata ….

Jisghar men tum rahati, sab sadgun ata,
Karna sake koi karle, man nahin ghabrata.
jai Lakshmi Mata …..

Tum bin yagya na hovey, vastra na koi pata,
Khaan paan ka vaibhav, sab tumse aata.
Jai Lakshmi Mata ….

Shubh-gun-mandir sundar, Kshirodadhi jaata,
Ratan charurdash tum-bin, koi nahih paata.
Jai Lakshmi Mata ….

Aarti Lakshmi jee kee, Jo koi nar gaata,
Ur aanand samaata, paap utar jaata.
Jai Lakshmi Mata ….

Jai Lakshmi mata, maiyya jai Lakshmi maata,
Tumko nishdin sevat, Har Vishnu vidhaata.
Jai Lakshmi Mata ….

Meaning

Glory to you, O Mother, glory to you, mother Lakshmi. Shiva, Vishnu and Brahma meditate on you everyday and night.

You are yourself the consort of Brahma, Rudra and Vishnu and the mother of the world. The sage Narada sings your praises and the Sun and the Moon meditate on you .

As Durga, you grant both happiness and prosperity and he who centres his attention on you becomes a recipient of all riddhis and siddhis Prosperity and Accomplishment.

None but you dwell in the nether regions of the earth and you alone ensure good luck , bring to light the effect of action (karma), and protect all worldly treasures.

All the virtues collect themselves where you have your dwelling ; with your grace and favour even the impossible becomes possible without causing any nervous agitation.

No sacrifice can be performed without you; no one can obtain any garment; it is from you that one obtains one’s sustenance .

O! daughter of the Ocean of Milk and the beauteous temple of all propitious virtues, you are verily a living mass of all fourteen gems with which none else is endowed .

Whosoever hymns this prayer to Lakshmi is purged of his sins and experiences the ecstasy of joy.
