Wish us good luck,
Oh, the flowers of the departing year
we shall not meet again here,
the home-coming birds of twilight
give us warm hugs
when on this day we take leave of each other!
Sing us a song,
Oh, the swift-flowing brooks and rivers!
Rock our dreams, Oh, the ripples of the sea,
and shake off our fears and sorrows
as old leaves, Oh, lovely tall trees!
Oh, soft-sailing clouds of the sky!
Lift us up to show what is coming on our way?
Carrying in her arms, is she the princess of happiness
to usher the baby New Year full of smiles and grace!
(We say goodbye to 2012 and welcome the New Year)
