My longing comes to my lips as supplication of mine
Oh God! May like the beauty of the candle be the life of mine

May the world's darkness disappear through the life of mine
May every place light up with the sparkling light of mine

May my homeland through me attain elegance
As the garden through flowers attains elegance

May my life like that of the moth be oh Lord
May I love the lamp of knowledge oh Lord

May supportive of the poor my life's way be
May loving the old, the suffering my way be

My God! Protect me from the evil ways
Show me the path leading to the good ways
