Awake Thou My Soul


Why yer have thou go nought O my soul.
Weary not, for thy hour has come.
That time to rejoice in thy grace.
kindred yourself from thy solely mood.
Merit in thee work of thy Creator.

The land is given to thee to grace.
The brook is for thee to refresh thy thirst.
And thy honey to quench thine hunger.
Rein thy mount like a spirited horse thy soul.
Rejoice in thee work of thy Creator.

O thou my soul, thy hour has cometh.
Away from sadness, flight from that sorrowful hour.
The music the nature play is twas enough to awake thy mind.
Merit in thee work of thy Creator.
Rejoice in thee work of thy Creator.

The Gods Are Crazy

Who can know what pleases the gods?
Or who can know the minds of the gods?
Sometimes they smile at you,
And another day, they mock you.

Am A Soldier

Am a soldier
I may be leaving
'cos soldier go, soldier come,
but you are not forgotten,


No idol like mother.
A mother is like precious gold,
priceless beyond compare.
She is like a precious gold.

A Short Life

If this is a goodbye, then the journey is short.
Am a sojourner, a stranger and wanderer.
The little life I had lived is of no regret.
Although, no monument has been dedicated to me.


The sound of morning awake me with joy.
It means a new day as begin.
The beauty of the rising sun is incomparable,
And the thirst of the dew is refreshing.
