Like a candle In the midnight’s blind, Like a torch In the solid darkness, You are a luminous guide, Happy Teachers’ Day!
From the life buried beneath To the horizon’s blissful rays, From the road unknown To the world’s most travelled You have propelled me, An expert driver! Happy Teachers’ Day!
Up atop the mountain’s pinnacle I see the beatific snows melting, Deep down within my innocent heart A perennial breeze whistling Fluttering the words you taught me, You are such a great liberator Happy Teachers’ Day!
The window to the east Adorns with the golden rays first Each disciple you face Receives the wisdom first And I was the first for you, A lighter like you Happy Teachers’ Day!
