"Come, for today is for us a day of festival;
henceforward joy and pleasure are on the increase.
Clap hands, say "Today is all happiness";
from the beginning it was manifestly a fine day.
Who is there in the world like our Friend?
Who has seen such a festival in a hundred cycles?
Earth and heaven are filed with sugar;
in every direction sugarcane has sprouted.
The roar of the pearl-scattering sea has arrived;
the world is full of waves, and the sea is invisible."
