"O gopis, I am not able to repay My debt for your spotless service, even within a lifetime of Brahma. Your connection with Me is beyond reproach. You have worshiped Me, cutting off all domestic ties, which are difficult to break. Therefore please let your own glorious deeds be your compensation."
This verse from Srimad-Bhagavatam (10.32.22) was spoken by Sri Krsna Himself when He returned to the gopis upon hearing their songs of separation.
