I am also a child of a loving mother,

I was not thrown into the womb of my mother,

God's blessings put me in your womb,

and His angels flew from heaven to lay me in your divine womb.


I came to fulfill the God’s will, mother;

Blissful in my new abode of love, and slept there serenely.

The angles watched and kept me secure always,

Till I saw and breath the face of the earth.


Angels used to come to me to get my comfort;

All became very happy and thanked God on my birth;

Tasted milk of my mother on my birth,

I was blissful to be born as your beloved child.


I wanted to smile, I wanted to sing;

I wanted to play, I wanted to frolic;

I wanted to suck your breast milk,

I wanted you smiling and fulfilled.


On a cruel day, your master decided to slay me,

The devils in the underworld listened to their decision,

Took the loudest drum, danced on the demonic beats;

All the evil spirits jumping, singing and dancing.


All danced in lines, all danced in ring;

All danced on the heels, all danced their best;

All sang the ugliest song and Devils played the wildest music;

Butchers gulped the hemlock and beheaded me.


Demonic spirits were happy but heaven cried;

I, my mother and angels cried;

Moment before I was brutally slaughtered,

All-Powerful, All-merciful God also cried helplessly.


A happy-dancing child of God,

Became a dish on the plate of a devil.

My bones from the heap of plate thrown to the dogs,

At a distance my mother shedding the tears of blood,
