Sanskrit text, Unicode transliteration, Word-for-word and English translation of verse 1.4.59:

निजेष्ट-स्वामिनो नाम-कीर्तन-श्रुति-हर्षितः ।
उत्प्लुत्य हनूमान् दूरात् कण्ठे जग्राह नारदम् ॥ ५९ ॥

nijeṣṭa-svāmino nāma-kīrtana-śruti-harṣitaḥ |
utplutya hanūmān dūrāt kaṇṭhe jagrāha nāradam || 59 ||

Śrī Hanumān, hearing the nāma-kīrtana of his worshipful deity, Śrī Rāmacandra, in the distance, jumped up joyfully and flew into the sky, and seizing the neck of Śrī Nārada, caught him in the bond of his embrace.
