Our day will come again

(1139)  Tomar sathe kon atiite

With You in what ancient past
Had occurred acquaintance?
I've forgot the day and date,
The sweet anniversary;
But will that memory ever get erased?

A hundred trumpets play at Your victory procession;
From afar I hear the grave and sonorous assemblage.
I want to go near, but I just cannot set out;
Insignificance is a block hard to surmount.

I am aware that You are great; I know that I am small.
But sporting with the paltry, indeed it's Your liila...
Trading hearts with the meager!
