One last wish oh! Angel of death
One last thing before my last breath
Take me to the world of knowledge springs
Make me wine and dine with the wise kings

Let me read the choicest of books
Let me drink from the scripture brooks
Let me sit within circles of learning
Let me tap from men of understanding

A little more time, Oh! Angel of death
To go round the world and earn more wealth
Wealth of knowledge and wealth of thinking
Wealth that stops the ignorant from sinking.
