Enlightment

Lir iLir lir iLir tandure wus sumiLir
The breeze blows over the rice field

Tak ijo royo royo. Tak sengguh Panganten anyar
Its dark green as pretty as a newly wed.

Cah angon, cah angon! Penekna blimbing kuwi
O Shepherds, O Shepherd! Please climb that star fruit tree for me.

Lunyu lunyu penekna, kanggo mbasuh dodotira
Eventhough its slippery, please climb it, I need the star fruit to wash my clothes

Dodotira dodotira kumintir bedah ing pinggir.
My clothes fluttered in the wind, the edges are frayed.

Dondomana jrumatana kanggo seba mengko sore.
Sew it and prepare it, I need it, to meet my master tonight.

Mumpung padang rembulane, mumpung jembar kalangane.
While the moon is big and bright, and the meeting hall is spacious.

Yo Suraka Surak Hiyo!!
Let us yell Horrey!

Yo Suraka Surak Hiyo!!
Let us yell Horrey!

Lir Ilir Sunan Kalijaga Raden Mas Said 1546.
