To Your beat I sing

(1680)  Tumi chande chande ele priyatama

My Dearest, in many rhythms You arrived,
Seeming like the honey from Paradise.
My multi-scented, restless life
Was touched by sandalwood unrivaled.

The heavenly, elysian river dances
All around You, with different forms and ornaments.
You appeared, bringing heaven's sweetness...
What nectar irresistible did You dispense?

Without You the full moon is bedimmed;
While filled with You, Earth exudes sweetness.
You exist; hence, the whole world exists...
Before You I genuflect, Essence of Essence.
