The ride of my life

(1923)  Amay niye calle tumi

You departed, taking me
To someplace unknown, to someplace unknown.
Why does my boat that is tugged downstream
Upstream want to go?

Buying-and-selling having finished,
Give-and-take accounts having settled,
Your boat will get rowed
To a fair Arcadia.

When the high tide had come in,
No oarsman or tillerman had there been;
Now at twilight I am ready and equipped,
Rescued, upon You reliant.
