SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,

Translation by U.Ve. Dr. V.N. Vedanta Desikan Swamin:

454. charaNakamalamEthadhranganAThasya nithyam
     sharaNamithi janAnAm dharshayanthI yaThAvath
     prathipadhamapi hrudhyam pAdhukE! svAdhuBhAvA
     dhanuvadhathi param thE nAdhamAmnAyapankthi

Oh Paaduka! The Veda sequence (that is recited behind the Lord) is 
only a mere repetition of the fascinating sound of Yours, at every 
step too; the thrust of the Veda is to impress upon all people that 
these Lotus Feet of the Lord are the sure refuge at all times. You 
too say that only. 

Namo Narayana,

SriMuralidhara Dasan

SlOkam 454:

Special Nots by V.SatakOpan (V.S):

(1) Sri UtthamUr Swamy's anubhavam: Oh PaahdukA ! VedAs follow
the Lord and serve as accompaniments to the Naadham generated by
You. During Your travel with the Lord , Your Naadham instructs
the people that the Lord's lotus feet are the only source for
their protection and salvation. VedAs endorse Your lofty message
at each step of their journey as they follow You and Your Lord.

(2) Srimath Andavan's anubhavam: VedAs follow Your Naadham to
instruct us that the Lord's sacred feet alone protect all
the worlds.The inner meaning is that Swamy NammAzhwAr's
ThiruvAimozhi instructs us that the Lord's Thiruvadi protects
all the worlds.

(3)The rows of VedAs ( AamnAya Pankthi:) instruct us
that the Lord's CharaNa Kamalam protects all chEthanams
( RanganATasya CharaNa Kamalam janAnAm nithyam SaraNam
ithi darsayanthi). As He makes every step during His
SanchAram on Your back, You generate the sweet Naadham
that broadcasts that Vedic message( Prathipadham api Hrudhyam
tE Naadham svAdhu0bhAvAth anuvadathi)..(V.S).
