To Thee I sing

(1855)  Gan gai tumi shono

I sing, You please listen;
Ever since my birth a tune I am practicing;
Know that it's to sing to You.

Summer has come with a scorching heat;
And rainy season has brought water-streams;
Autumn was with dew dropping down like tears...
No fault of mine was there.

Came prewinter with night struck by frost,
And winter with extreme snow-fall;
Then spring arrived, and she allowed outpouring
Of a song along with feelings.

  1. After rehearsing for so long, perhaps at last I can perform? Surely the long-awaited day must come.
