English translation

I adore Thee, O’Mother Utkal
How loving are Thy smile and voice !
O’Mother, Mother, Mother !
Bath’d art Thou by the sacred Sea,
Thy shores adorned with trees tall and green,
Balmy breeze blowing by beauteous streams,
O’Mother, Mother, Mother !
Thy body bedeck’d with dense woodlands,
Arrayed with verdant hills plaited like waves,
Thy sky ringing with choirs of singing birds,
O’Mother, Mother, Mother !
How charming are Thy rich fields of corn !
Thou art Eye to Erudition enow,
Sacred Abode to saints and seers,
O’Mother, Mother, Mother !
Thy land bejewelled with splendid shrines,
Richly dress’d art Thou in varied arts,
Thy limbs studded with sacred sites,
O’Mother, Mother, Mother !
Thou Home to the valiant heroes of Utkal,
Thy frame crimsoned with enemies’ blood,
Prime Darling of the whole universe,
O’Mother, Mother, Mother !
Greeted by Thy great sons, the crowning bards,
Thy untarnished glory proclaimed all around,
Blessed art Thou, the Holy, the Unfalling Abode,
I adore Thee, O’Mother, Mother, Mother !
—Kantakabi Laxmikanta Mohapatra
