Drab no more

(1204)  Tumi ele alo jvalale

You came and lit a light;
You have loved effusively.
You opened eyes and gently smiled;
All sorrow You have sent elsewhere.

Neglected and disdained,
How many nights and days are passing!
You discerned the pain, and so You came;
With both hands You have wiped away the tears.

In sky is the moon, in the bloom is nectar;
But in my vicinity, just despair was there.
Then You arrived and applied color;
You've suffused the world with color's beauty.
