Such an easy thing to do,

Me treasuring you.

Such an easy thing for free,

You treasuring me.

Simple gifts we loving bring

Clear our hearts and let us sing.

World applauds the goddess, king

Alive in me and you.

My pleasure comes as I watch you

And in your fire delight.

Seeing, I remember well

How limitless our light.

I’ve learned from this a law, my love,

Across the universe:

We see outside what is within —

Our best from loving first.
