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
