In you the new life begins
You, who converts blood to milk,
You, who converts blood to sweat,
You, who willingly sacrifice life for others,
In you I see the creator,
And in you I see me……..

In you my life begins
Your blood becomes my food,
Your blood becomes my flesh,
Your sacrifices becomes my possessions,
In you I see the purpose of creation,
And in you I see me ………

In you, I proud to be one among you
In you, I proud to be one among you,
You, you, you, you?
I don’t want to refer “YOU” just as a word,
But as how my heart beats and bleeds,
AMMA, AMMA, AMMAAAAAA……………..
