Leave This
(Rabindranath Tagore)

Leave this chanting and singing and telling of beads!

Whom dost thou worship in this lonely dark corner of a temple with doors

all shut?

Open thine eyes and see thy God is not before thee!

He is there where the tiller is tilling the hard ground

and where the pathmaker is breaking stones.

He is with them in sun and in shower,

and his garment is covered with dust.

Put off thy holy mantle and even like him come down on the dusty soil!

Tinggalkan Ini
(oleh Djodi Lembayung)

Tinggalkan gemerincing, nyanyian dan suara butiran tasbih!

Ritual suci di dalam sudut gelap kuil yang tertutup semua pintunya?

Buka sang mata dan lihatlah Tuhannya bukan sebelum kamu!

Ia di sana ketika akar menusuk tanah keras

Dan saat dimana pemahat memecah batu

Ia bersamanya di dalam matahari dan di antara hujan,

Dan bajunya diselimuti debu.

Tanggalkan jubah suci, seperti turunnya Dia di atas tanah berdebu!
