The song lyrics and translation by Tagore.

Light, my light, the world-filling light,
the eye-kissing light,heart-sweetening light!
Ah, the light dances, my darling,at the center of my light;
the light strikes, my darling, the chords of my love;
The sky opens, the wind runs wild,
laughter passes over the earth.
The butterflies spread their sails on
 the sea of light.
Lillies and jasmines surge up
on the crest of the waves of light.
The light is scattered into gold on 
the cloud my darling, 
and it scatters gems in profusion.
Mirth spreads from leaf to leaf,
 my darling, and gladness without measure.
Heaven's river has drowned its banks
 and the flood of joy is abroad. 
 

Translated by Rabindranath Tagore
