Leave this chanting
        singing and telling of beads!
Whom dost thou worship 
        in this lonely dark corner 
                of a temple with doors all shut?
Open thine eyes 
        see thy God is not before thee! 
He is there where the tiller 
        is tilling the hard ground
Where the pathmaker is breaking stones.
He is with them in sun and in shower,
With his garment is covered with dust.
Put off thy holy mantle 
        and even like him 
                come down on the dusty soil! 
 
Wàngjìdài
