Then make it day or night?

But sure with patience I can bear

তবে নিশ্চিত ধৈর্য সহ্য করতে পারি

A loss I ne’er know.

Then let not what I cannot have

তাহলে আমার যা থাকতে পারে না তা হতে দাও

My cheer of mind destroy;

আমার মনের উল্লাস ধ্বংস;

Whilst thus I sing, I am a king,

এইভাবে গান গাই, আমি রাজা,

Although a poor blind boy.

যদিও একজন গরিব অন্ধ ছেলে।
