I have had my invitation to this world's...

Language: English after the Bangla (Bengali)

I have had my invitation to this world's festival,
and thus my life has been blessed.

My eyes have seen and my ears have heard.
It was my part [at this feast]1 
to play upon my instrument 
and I have done all I could.

Now, I ask, has the time come at last 
when I may go in 
and see thy face 
and offer thee my silent salutation?


Translation(s): DUT FRE GER GER

J'avais eu mon invitation pour le...

Language: French (Français) after the English

J'avais eu mon invitation pour le festival de ce monde
et ainsi ma vie a été bénie.

Mes yeux ont vu et mes oreilles entendu.
Mon rôle était [à cette fête]1 
de jouer de mon instrument,
et j'ai fait tout ce que j'ai pu.

Maintenant je demande, si le temps est enfin venu, 
quand pourrais-je entrer
et voir ton visage
et t'offrir mes salutations silencieuses
