A love song

(498)  Jhum jhumajhum

Jingle, jangle;
Jingle, jangle...
A song of love has rung out; so let's proceed.
All of you, move... to the woods, let's hurry!

Inside the forest, kadam flowers[1] are there;
Night-jasmine[2] and screwpine[3] blossoms are falling.
On arms we'll wear bangles, on hair we'll tie garlands...
Round and around God's land we will dance.

In our rhythmic dance beat and lyric melody,
At a great distance our Deity won't keep.
Humans, animals, and birds, we agree;
With tears we did weep, we'll wash His holy feet.
