Birthday pledge

(132)  Janmatithite nutaner srote

On my birthday,[1] in the current of the new,
May I realize the light of novelty.
Lord of poetic rhapsody,
Fill me with new vitality.

Whatever is given I'll take with both hands.
Whatever is heard I'll treasure in my heart.
Your life I'll devote to You.
In Your name let me be immersed.

Fresh is the tender new leaf;
From red it has gone green.
With new power and new ability,
I would engage in service to all.

No longer will I sing songs of despair.
Never will I deem life a burden.
In myriad rhythms and sweet jubilation,
Your message I will convey.
