English interpretation

Look, the morning sun is rising in the sky
Eternal light will soon absob every drop of darkness

Look, the terrible night is over
Lotus of a thousand petals is blooming in the horizon
The joy of life is prevailing over the gloom of the night
Look, man can never be defeated
Come and celebrate the joy of life
