(1)மலர்கள் கேட்டேன் வனமே தந்தனை
(2)தண்ணீர் கேட்டேன் அமிர்தம் தந்தனை
(3)எதை நான் கேட்பின் 
(4)எதை நான் கேட்பின் உனையே தருவாய்

malargaL kaettaen vanamae thandhdhanai
thaNNeer kaettaen amirdham thandhdhanai
edhai naan kaetpin
edhai naan kaetpin unaiyae tharuvaay

when I asked for flowers, you were the one who gave me the whole forest!
when I asked for water, you were the one who gave me elixir!
what shall I ask for?
what shall I ask for? Oh beloved (god)! so that you would give yourself?

(5)காட்டில் தொலைந்தேன் வழியாய் வந்தனை
இருளில் தொலைந்தேன் ஒளியாய் வந்தனை
(6)எதனில் தொலைந்தால் 
எதனில் தொலைந்தால் நீயே வருவாய்

kaattil tholaindhdhaen vazhiyaay vandhdhanai
iruLil tholaindhdhaen oLiyaay vandhdhanai
edhanil tholaindhdhaal
edhanil tholaindhdhaal neeyae varuvaay

when I was lost in the forests, you were the one who came as the path (map)!
when I was lost in the darkness, you were the one who came as the light!
In what shall I get lost in?
In what shall I get lost in? Oh beloved (god)! so that you yourself will come?

(7)பள்ளம் வீழ்ந்தேன் சிகரம் சேர்த்தனை
வெள்ளம் வீழ்ந்தேன் கரையில் சேர்த்தனை
(8)எதனில் வீழ்ந்தால்
எதனில் வீழ்ந்தால் உன்னிடம் சேர்ப்பாய்

paLLam veezhndhdhaen sigaram saerthanai
veLLam veezhndhdhaen karaiyil saerthanai
edhanil veezhndhdhaal
edhanil veezhndhdhaal unnidam saerppaay

when I fell into a depression, you lifted me and made me reach the peaks!
when I was inundated in the floods, you were the one who rescued me back to the shores!
In what do I fall into?
In what do I fall into? Oh beloved(god)! so that you would make me reach you!
