Original text and translations

Indonesian.png Indonesian text

Serumpun padi tumbuh di sawah,
hijau menguning daunnya.

Tumbuh di sawah penuh berlumpur,
Dipangkuan Ibu Pertiwi.

Serumpun jiwa suci,
hidupnya nista abadi.

English.png English translation

A sheaf of rice grow[s] in the paddy;
Its green leaves [will ripen to] gold.

Growing in the paddy full of mud,
[it has been cradled] in Mother Nature's lap.

[When] the souls of the holy [have been] gathered
their lifetimes are [the merest] speck on their imperishable [existence].
