Translated by P. R. Ramachander
Poruthu arulvaye, bhooma deviye,
Pongum kopam yeno, podum thaaye
Surakkum anbai pozhindidu vaye,
Shodanai pothatho manila thaye
Mannil piranthale maalvathu nijame,
Maaye, nee manam vaithaal kavalaikal oyume,
Kanniyamai vaazha kathu arulvaye,
Karunai udan vaazha vandhu arulvaaye.
Oh goddess earth, please bear with us,
Why this ebbing anger, Oh mother it is sufficient.
Please shower the love that is produced,
Oh Mother land, Is the test not sufficient.
If we are born in this earth, death is the truth,
Oh Goddess of illusion, If you want all the worries would disappear,
Please protect us so that we can live honestly,
Please come and shower your grace to live with mercy.
