Literal, explicit meaning of this Paasuram

Oh, Lord Krishna, who removes the trembling fear of the thirty-three crore angels (it is believed by ordinary people that there are thirty-three crore angles in heaven) by standing in front of them (during their battles with demons), Oh, valorous one, kindly wake up from sleep.
Oh, Lord, who takes care and protects your devotees and possesses enormous strength! You are blemishless in doing so by saving your dependants and punishing their enemies. Oh, blemishless, please wake up.
Oh, Nappinnai! Who possesses a charming body with soft bosoms, red lips, and a narrow waist! Oh, Goddess Lakshmi! Please awaken.
Please give your Lord to us along with a fan (of peacock feathers generally) and a bronze mirror and bathe us in the holy waters just now.

Inner, in-depth meaning of this Thiruppavai Paasuram 20

The number 33 angels or gods, in this context, comprises the total figure of ashTa Vasu (8 vasus), 12 Sun-Gods of Bhagavata Purana, 11 Rudras, and 2 Ashwini Devatas.
Andal tells that Lord Krishna should come even before all to protect us as he does with them.
God always protects his devotees and has an equal attachment with all beings. But, if anybody harms his devotees, He will destroy them.
Nappinnai is regarded here as the Goddess Lakshmi herself. So, she is referred to as Thiru in "thiruve". She is the PurushakAram just like Goddess Lakshmi who always involves herself with God in the protection of devotees. So, the gopis request Her to help them in taking this holy bath by giving them Lord Krishna.
